We kwamen hier toevallig terecht. Wat is het hier bijzonder. Graven uit alle tijden door elkaar heen. Hier worden ook oude graven gerestaureerd i.p.v. geruimd.

Many well-known writers, philosophers and musicians. There is a museum and you can have a nice lunch.
This is an absolutely incredible place. It represents the whole history of modern day Ireland. A tour is essential though. The wonderful Warren, who showed us around, was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to give us great insights into the individuals' lives and deaths. I normally do not enjoy 'tours' but this was more like a clever friend chatting with you. Just absolutely great!
Wanted to do this for so long and eventually got around to do it. Paddy was our guide for the two hours. Absolute Gent, very knowledgeable and very easy to listen too unlike some tour guides who just run through it. Would definitely recommend this even if your not interested in Irish History.
