At Glasnevin Trust we recognise that burials and cremations constitute a critical service to the public. It is vital therefore that these activities continue during the COVID-19 pandemic at each of our locations: Glasnevin, Newlands Cross, Palmerstown, Dardistown and Goldenbridge.

Furthermore, Glasnevin Trust holds close to 200 years of tradition in this area, and through other epidemics, pandemics and times of difficultly, we have held an enduring commitment to uphold the dignity of the deceased and their families at times of burial. 

Equally, we must ensure that we protect our staff and we must also play our part in protecting the general public in delaying the spread of COVID-19. 

Strict social distancing protocols must be observed at all times during the grave visitation hours. We would ask people not to enter Glasnevin Cemetery during these hours unless specifically visiting a grave.

For Christmas and New Year opening hours as well as pedestrian and vehicle access, click here.

Our cemeteries at Glasnevin, Goldenbridge, Newlands Cross, Dardistown, and Palmerstown will be open for funeral services and grave visits only over Christmas and New Year.

Please note that the Tower Café located at Glasnevin will be open daily from 10 am - 4 pm everyday except 25th and 26th December 2020.

We can assure the public and loved ones of those who are resting with us that once it is safe to do so, we will once again return to normal opening times.

We thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Protocol for Burials, Cremations and Funeral Services 

Click here to view public notice regarding government guidelines issued on 22nd Dec regarding attendance at funeral services and web streaming available in all our crematoria.

The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented and evolving situation.  We will update our website with other operational changes as they arise. 
We recognise that some of these changes will impact on the experience of the funeral services that families would have otherwise wanted.  However, we trust that the public will understand that these changes are Government-mandated so that Glasnevin Trust can both protect our staff and support the national effort to delay the spread of COVID-19.

It is also recommended that you get information on the overall situation from reliable sources such as HSE and WHO.
