I really enjoyed the tour. I found the facts about Daniel O'Connell interesting. I also found it great being able to touch the coffin of Daniel O' Connell. Great day all round. Well worth a visit.

I'd say not. The tour is quite long and probably not very interesting for the average 10 year old. Perhaps the shop staff at Glasnevin could suggest some interesting headstones to visit instead and you could make your own... More
