Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

12:00pm on Saturday, August 24th

You may well know that many of the figures who shaped the course of Irish history are buried here but these grounds themselves have a rich history which dates back to 1832 when the site first opened.

You will also learn about the day-to-day business and pastimes of the people who lived in Dublin when the cemetery first opened.

Highlights that will feature on the Heritage Week are as follows:

  • Insights into Victorian Garden Cemeteries in Europe and in Ireland
  • The history of 'Prospect'  the oldest part of Glasnevin Cemetery
  • Tree-lined avenues and detailed monuments
  • Facts about the lives of men, women and children living in Dublin in the Victorian era
  • The natural heritage and environment in Ireland's largest garden cemetery

Admission is free however registration is essential.
