Glasnevin Cemetery Museum offers exciting and engaging education programmes for students of all ages. Students can learn about the events and personalities which shaped the course of Irish history one hundred years ago through guided tours of the cemetery, interactive exhibits and preparatory work packs - all of which complement specific elements of the curriculum.
Students can learn about the events and personalities which shaped the course of Irish history since 1800 through guided tours of the cemetery, visiting the graves of Daniel O’Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins, James Larkin, Countess Markievicz, and many more besides. Students and teachers can also make use of interactive exhibits and preparatory work packs, and curriculum-based work packs will be sent ahead of your visit to help students prepare.
Looking for a challenging, valuable and fun program for your Transition Year class? Why not try Glasnevin’s Transition Year Tour Guiding Programme? Not only will you learn about the importance of tourism to the economy, but students will develop the skills of researching, writing and public speaking, while also exploring the history of nineteenth and twentieth century Ireland.
The program includes two visits to Glasnevin Cemetery; the first is the training portion of the programme, and on the second visit each student steps into the shoes of the tour guide and performs, informs and entertains their audience.
For 2017-18, we are developing a number of new educational offerings geared towards the needs of the Leaving Certificate History Curriculum, including dedicated workshops and tours for the Leaving Certificate Research Study, with a particular focus on the ‘Decade of Centenaries’.
