Cemetery Tours

DeadIreland is dedicated to highlighting the artistic, cultural and historic importance of cemeteries in Ireland. Cemeteries are a much undervalued part of our heritage and we hope to encourage people to appreciate the significance of cemeteries by promoting organised tours, lectures, displays and exhibitions, and through this website.

The DeadIreland website will also include all things relating to death in Ireland. This includes cemeteries, historic graves, wakes, funerals, death masks, burial customs, funerary art and books. These will be  included either on this site or linked to specialist sites. Such a site is irishgraves.com which is a companion to this site and includes photographs of the graves of over 1200 historic Irish figures.

DeadIreland is a member of the Association of Significant Cemeteries in Europe.
