Glasnevin Cemetery Museum
Finglas Road, Dublin 11
1.5 Million Stories to Tell

Visit Ireland’s largest cemetery, a grand and impressive Necropolis. Since 1832, more than 1.5 million people have been interred in Glasnevin - rich and famous, paupers and politicians, artists, warriors and heroes, all resting side by side in this renowned Victorian Garden Cemetery.

Established by Daniel O’Connell as a place where people of “all religions and none” could bury their dead with dignity; the cemetery has grown to become a national monument and is a vital part of Irish history

The guided walking tours and museum exhibits tell the story of the social and historical development of modern Ireland through the lives of the generations buried there.
