By the time we arrived at Glasnevin, we had missed the last tour, unfortunately. We decided to go up through the tower which was very cool but incredibly tiring as there are hundreds of stairs. It was worth it for the view and the experience!...More

Wonderful headstones, though in places they are very close together. Not only is there a museum where you can look for your geneology, they have a shop where they carve headstones next door which is fun to peruse.

Yes it is. Many lanes are paved and others are gravel. The cafe, shopping and toilets are all on one level
