Experience the atmospheric surrounds of Goldenbridge Cemetery on our guided tour through Ireland’s first garden cemetery. Founded by Daniel O’Connell, almost two hundred years ago, discover the unique history and legacy of Ireland’s first Catholic burial ground. Surrounded by high walls, and almost untouched over two centuries, learn about the cemetery’s hidden histories, including the secret watchmen, the underground vaults and the notorious body snatchers. Led by professional guides, visitors can explore the unspoiled grounds and discover the personal stories of those who lie within.
This is a unique experience in Dublin, and one not to be missed.
“A hidden gem … a peaceful resting place full of history”
