The 2:30 tour and re-enactment of the Padraig Pierce speech is amazing. We have been 4 or 5 times and bring friends along when people visit. Try visiting the botanic gardens (there's a gate between the two). Finish up with tapas in the Gravediggers and a pint of Guinness. Perfect day out for those visiting dublin. Bridget is also an excellent tour guide on the cemetery tour.
Wow. I really like this place. The tour is fabulous and has many historical points if you are Irish or want to learn more. At Michael Collins grave the military perform a ritual at 2 pm everyday to honor this great man.
