You'll learn so many little human stories and facts you never knew before. The tour guides are brilliant! It was even better that we anticipated. Recommend a pint of the black stuff in The Gravediggers after.

We visited Glasnevin Cemetery with the Dunboyne Men Shed. It was super informative and the Guides were excellent. Well worth a visit anytime.

We were at mid-term tales today and our tour guides were Alan and Warren. I have to say, they were very good and put alot of fun it! It only cost €7 and well worth it.

The cemetery is beautiful and boasts many famous residents. The historical tour was long and dry though. You can download the app and take a self guided tour for cheaper and it provides much more freedom to explore and enjoy at your own pace.
