Welcome to Goldenbridge Cemetery
An historic garden setting to honour life with choice, dignity and respect.
Goldenbridge is the foundation stone of Dublin Cemeteries Trust, the first cemetery to be opened by Daniel O'Connell and the Dublin Cemeteries Committee in 1828, to fulfil his vision to provide dignified burial space "for those of all religions and none".
An oasis of calm and tranquility in Inchicore, close to the city centre, it is also the smallest of our cemeteries, covering just two acres. Like Glasnevin, which opened four years after Goldenbridge, it is a Victorian Garden cemetery. Dominated by beautiful mature trees and a large central monument, this is a unique space with a distinctly peaceful, even rural atmosphere.
Within the historic walls of Goldenbridge cemetery lie the legends of a city and a nation, and the story of Dublin Cemeteries Trust.
The extraordinary life and times of our founder Daniel O'Connell is richly told at his own burial place in Glasnevin Cemetery. His pioneering vision of equality which continues to drive the Trust forward today, and his ultimate legacy in establishing Ireland's National Cemetery, all started here in Goldenbridge.
