The reopening of the tower is the cherry on the cake. Take a guided tour and see the graves of the famous (and infamous) or stroll around recognising famous names from history. It's a great way to spend a few hours.

It’s a unique experience - makes one contemplate the unknown, reflect on one’s mortality and admire those who have gone before. Burial sure for a million and a half - above and below ground.

The history was just oozing from this place and a very informative and eye opening visit. Not a macabre visit in the slightest and a very (dare I say) relaxing and poignant place to visit. Strolled around at my leisure.

Our tour guide Irial gave us a 90 minute tour. He was very informative and made what could have been a dry and boring history lesson into a fascinating glimpse into Irish political history. Highly recommended.

I've been for a couple of tours here, and the guides are always amazing. The museum is interesting too. Worth a visit for a themed tour.
