Tour was very interesting a great amount of history, tour guide was very informative a great way to get a feel for 1916 years of Ireland !!
Our tour lasted two hours. We were guided around to the graves of many of Ireland's modern leaders. The walk was a lesson in the last 150 years of Irish history. The guide was great. FYI, I had made an inquiry with the cemetery about the need of getting tickets in advance. I was told to get my tickets in advance. Glad I did.
Absolutely fabulous tour. Our guide John? was a wealth of knowledge and entertaining. It was one of the best tours we have ever booked.
Highlight of our trip. Tour guide, Geraldine was brilliant, informative and interesting. Lasts over an hour . Cafe and shop also worth visiting.
Loved this. Guide was so knowledgable and passionate about the history of Dublin and Ireland. Go there!
My advice is fo a city historical tour first so you know the background of some of the famous people buried here.Took the local bus to get here. This was a nice way to see the other side of the city.
Do this your if you love history and learning new facts.
Loved this tour my favourite tour of all lots and lots of history and info mind boggling at times but very entertaining learnt so much the great weather made it even better
This cemetery is just spectacular! There is so much history in one place and the tour guide knew everything there was to know about it all!
We booked the tour, having seen previous reviews, but were still a little unsure. After all, how interesting can a tour around a cemetry be? So, if you're reading this and are a little unsure, my advice is, just book it or you will be missing out on a great tour. We caught the bus from O'Connell St, very easy. Arrived a little early and so time for a cup of tea in the cafe and a look around the museum. Our tour started promptly and was fascinating from beginning to end, jammed with information on the history of Ireland and some of the people who helped to shape it. Our guide was excellent, knew his stuff inside out and his delivery was clear and captivating. If you have even a remote interest in the history of Ireland, this is one not to be missed.
Fascinating for both my 11 year old son and myself. It was probably the highlight of our trip. The history was so interesting and our guide so engaging.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. The cemetery is beautiful and vast, and contains the resting places of many notable people. The tour includes many of these, and gives participants quite a good education on the history of the country's revolutionary period. Lasted about 90 minutes.
Great history told with enthusiasm. Guide was very knowledgeable.

Excellent tour! Brought all the disparate information together about the Irish Revolution and the primary cast of characters. Learned so much I didn't know before. Cemeteries often tell the best stories! The museum was excellent.
The tour was most enjoyable. The tour guide (Liam I think) was extremely knowledgeable, informative at times amusing. Terrific hour and a half. Well worth a visit.
We had a great day in Glasnevin. The tour was fantastic. The tour guide excellent. The museum very interesting. The tea and scone excellent too.
Really enjoyed it. Paddy was a great guide. The two hrs flew by. Could have done two hrs more. Have recommended to family and friends
My husband and I were highly impressed with this tour. The tour guide Niall I think was excellent and very clear and distinct. He made the tour interesting and his little quips were very funny. Given the nature of the tour it was not heavy and there was no overload of information. Overall we really enjoyed it and have recommended it to others as a must see.
Thank you to all involved. Very well organised. Suggestion- any chance of developing a musicians/poets/etc cemetery tour!
Very Nice tour and guide, from my part, I learn a lot about Irish history, Revolution and politics. Weather was not bad either, and the museum deserves a little detour :)

Our visit 23rd Sept 2016 - Our Guide John was fantastic very knowledgable and plenty of humour thrown in. Very enjoyable and would highly recommend it.
Very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide! Great to have a small group for a morning session. Got asked if we had any questions multiple times and had lots of clarifications which was really helpful
Beautiful cemetery, guide did a nice job of explaining history and points of interest.
Very informative. Local guide did a very good job of explaining the background concerning the various individuals interned at Glasnevin. Recommend to any history buff.

Great tour. Guide was very knowledgeable. The cemetery was unbelievable. While there I also went into the museum and saw the World War I display. It was very touching and heartfelt. Barbara F
A very informative and enthisiastic guide, but slightly chaotic with different groups criss-crossing the cemetery in the late afternoon. Summer 2016 was possibly particularly busy because of the centenary, but I would advise visitors to go to the cemetery first thing in the morning when it is hopefully more like a cemetery than an overcrowded tourist attraction.
Didn't do the tour on the day scheduled due to a flight delay and was able to join in on another day. Interesting tour, very large group with a lot of walking so that the group could only move as fast as the slowest person. Weather turned cold and windy so waiting for slow walkers not any fun. Left the tour halfway through and used the map to finish on my own and got out of the wind.
