Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum are both the guardians and storytellers for over 1.5 million people. From the ordinary to the truly extraordinary, these people helped shape the Ireland of today. Our aim is to share their stories and times with you through tours of the cemetery, a visit to the museum or through a genealogy search for your family history.
Glasnevin Trust is run by an executive management team and governed by the Dublin Cemeteries Committee, a voluntary not-for-profit body originally established by Daniel O’Connell in 1828.
The Trust’s mission today remains as it was handed down from Daniel O’Connell; “to bury people of all religions and none”.
The Trust operates five cemeteries: Dardistown, Glasnevin, Goldenbridge, Newlands Cross and Palmerstown as well as two crematoria at Glasnevin and Newlands Cross.
Glasnevin Museum is the world's first cemetery museum. Visitors can explore the history and the lives of the people that are buried there.
