Phoenix Park and Museum Quarter

Heritage Tour of Bully’s Acre

Irish Museum of Modern Art

Join historian and author Paul O’Brien as he tells the story of this little know graveyard in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham.

He will take you on a unique tour of the (almost) last resting place of Robert Emmet and generations of Dubliners – commoners, businessmen, captains and privates… even sons of Kings.

This is a story of religion, grave robbing, poverty and sickness and is a must for all interested in the history of Dublin itself.
