Glasnevin Cemetery

This historically rich and diverse Victorian cemetery in the northern outskirts of Dublin was created as a place for both Catholics and Protestants to legally bury their dead. Due to the popularity of grave robbing at the time, the main section of the cemetery is impressively surrounded with walls, gates and watchtowers. It’s a stunning place full of notable Irish dignitaries with tours and a museum that keep it well-visited to this day.
