The world’s first cemetery museum is located in Glasnevin Cemetery where one can explore the lives of the 1.5 million people buried there. From ordinary people to the leaders of the Irish Free State such as Michael Collins there is a wealth of history to be discovered in the cemetery. Take advantage of the tours, museum or café to garner a full experience. Of particular note is the Republican Plot and the round tower which is the tallest in Ireland. The Cemetery walls meet the walls of the National Botanic Gardens on the far side. Here one can use the newly opened gate to slip between the two. Perfect for extending your visit to Glasnevin.
