The Tour Guides bring the stories behind Glasnevin Cemetery alive - even thought the weather was terrible the day we visited - no-one left the tour for shelter - a sign of an engaged audience.

We enjoyed breakfast at the lovely café before strolling around the historic cemetery and then through to the Botanic Gardens. We would recommend as a must do whilst in Dublin

Is great and they do a good tour. Join that if you are really interested. The museum itself is ok, but only worth it combined with a tour.

I'd say not. The tour is quite long and probably not very interesting for the average 10 year old. Perhaps the shop staff at Glasnevin could suggest some interesting headstones to visit instead and you could make your own... More
