Re-opened Wednesday 15th September 2021

    Welcome to Ireland's National Cemetery

    The stories of 1.5 million people are faithfully preserved here at Ireland's largest burial place, a beautifully restored Victorian cemetery featuring epic monuments to our past. From poets and presidents, singers and suffragettes, the ordinary and the extraordinary - the stories of those who shaped our nation's history are brought to life.

    We are delighted to be open again from September 15th, with our ever-popular Irish History Tour and our brand in new indoor visitor experience 'Extra-ordinary Lives'. For the coming months we will be operating a Winter schedule and will be open Wednesday - Sunday inclusive (closed Monday and Tuesday). 

    We look forward to welcoming you back to Experience Glasnevin – Ireland’s National Cemetery.
