What's Happening:

Opened in 1832, Glasnevin Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Ireland. An expert guide will introduce you to lives of some of the famous (and not so famous people) who are buried here. Join us for a walking tour and discover interesting information including: The Origins of the Cemetery, the experience of Fr. Francis Browne aboard the Titanic, the life of Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, and some of the works of Brendan Behan. In addition to the walking tour, this event includes the option to climb the O’Connell Tower. As you pass through the ornate crypt of Daniel O’Connell, you will begin the journey to the top of the monument built in his honour. After a comprehensive restoration programme, the staircase in the tower is now accessible, complete with an exhibition about the legendary figure himself and the fascinating history of the tower. Once at the top, you will enjoy 360 degree panoramic views of the sprawling grounds of the cemetery, the city of Dublin, Wicklow and the Irish Sea (health and safety conditions apply). Museum entry is also included in this event.
