Another beautiful place in Dublin. There are many well known people who are buried here. You can enter for free or pay for the museum. We opted for entry and walked around with map. There are soo many things to see in this cemetery. One recommendation I have is stop at the cafe get something to eat or drink before walking this cemetery. You can literally walk for hours which to me came as a pleasant surprise as I have never really been a cemetery visitor but I can say this place has changed that. You can get here by bus relatively easy. Last thing is look at the pictures in the reviews to give you idea of what to expect.
A fantastic way to spend a couple of hours learning some Irish history. Katy, the guide for my tour, was knowledgeable and engaging. Beautifully kept cemetery with interesting stories, including a speech given at the burial of Rossa. Fantastic and well worth the ticket price, which also included going up O'Connell's tower which has its own potted history.
