Tours of Goldenbridge Garden Cemetery, Inchicore

Richmond Barracks offer the opportunity to experience Dublin's first non-denominational cemetery and learn about the famous denizens who lie within


Love The Liberties, Visit

Richmond Barracks in Inchicore is delighted to announce the return of its Goldenbridge Garden Cemetery Tours.  The outdoor walking tours, led by our award winning tour guides will run on Saturdays and Sundays at noon and 2pm.

The cemetery, founded by Daniel O’Connell, almost 200 years ago, was Ireland’s first non-denominational burial ground and the first Catholic cemetery in Dublin. Goldenbridge Cemetery is an important part of the fabric of the history of Dublin and the local area.

Experience the atmospheric surrounds of Goldenbridge Cemetery on our guided tours through Ireland’s first garden cemetery. Visitors can walk through this unspoilt 19th century cemetery and learn about its unique history, including the underground vaults, the watchmen, the Cuban guard dogs and the body snatchers. Led by professional, award winning tour guides, the tour will visit the graves of two former Taoisigh as well as the graves of the many men, women and children buried here, whose stories shine a light on 19th century Dublin life.
