On a par with the renowned Highgate cemetery in London and Père Lachaise in Paris, the great Victorian mausoleums of Glasnevin continue to fascinate today. Dubliners have been laid to rest in Glasnevin, 3km from the city centre and 5 minutes by car from Croke Park hotel, since 1832. But unlike other historic necropolises Glasnevin has a state-of-the-art visitor centre and museum to give insight into the fascinating history of the cemetery and its famous inhabitants. Housed in a stunning building, with a stunning building with a curvilinear roof, the centre houses exhibitions uncovering Ireland's turbulent past and an underground museum with the digitised records of 1.5 million burials. And, as they say, the coffee's good too! Should you tire of the deceased you can celebrate the living with free access to the adjacent National Botanical Gardens.
