As some of those weird people who love cemeteries, my partner and I were interested in visiting Glasnevin. It was a beautiful place with a fascinating history. We were impressed with the museum, as well. It was beautifully presented and very informative!

Solemn place of rest for heroes and the wealthy. The tower and crypt of O'Connell seemed fitting for his value to the nation. Michael Collins memorial was far more modest. The tour guide was fabulous.

excellent tour given by our very informed and engaging tour guide paddy. Also a great rendition of the song "grace " at her graveside was the icing on the cake.
