  • This is the most amazing and beautiful cemetery I have ever visited. It's full of so much history. Our tour guide John Scanlon was the best tour guide we have ever had. His knowledge seemed endless and he had a great sense of humor.
  • A very underrated tour location. Best value tour in Dublin. I think it was 3 hours. Guide knows what she's talking about. Very interesting, a must see. Only place you get to say that you touched The Liberator's coffin! So many and unexpected famous plots
  • I visited the Cemetery today with three friends. We did the tour, which was most interesting and entertaining. Our guide was Niall and we would like to thank him and highly recommend him as a tour guide. The Museum was very interesting and informative. We had lunch in the Restaurant and would like to thank the people who run it - the food and service were excellent. Overall we had a wonderful few hours, but must say the only sour note to the day was the cost of the car park, which we all thought was outrageous. I paid €10.00 for having parked for almost four and a half hours and my friends, who arrived later than I, paid the same amount.
