After your Viking Splash school tour, why not include a tour of Glasnevin Cemetery Museum?
Glasnevin Cemetery Museum offers an engaging and entertaining education programme for schools.

On a tour you will explore the crypt of Daniel O’Connell, visit the graves of Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins, Eamon DeValera, Jim Larkin, Ann Devlin, Countess Markievicz and many more, while learning about life in 19th and 20th Century Ireland.
