Glasnevin Cemetery


Glasnevin Trust is governed by the Dublin Cemeteries Committee established by Daniel O'Connell in 1828. Glasnevin Trust includes Glasnevin, Goldenbridge, Palmerstown, Dardistown and Newlands Cross Cemeteries, Florists and Monument Works in each cemetery as well as Glasnevin Museum. As both the guardian and storyteller for over 1.5 million people, these people helped shape the Ireland of today. We want to share their stories and times with you through tours of the cemetery, a visit to the museum or through a genealogy search for your family history.

Glasnevin Museum is the world's first cemetery museum. Visitors can explore the history and the lives of more than 1.5 million people that are buried here.

Awarded Best Cultural Experience in Ireland at the Irish Tourism Industry Awards, Glasnevin is now one of Ireland’s most popular visitor attractions and is firmly established on the list of best things to do in Dublin. The story of modern Ireland is told through interactive exhibitions, dramatic re-enactments and daily walking tours.
