Transition Year Tour Guiding Programme

Have you ever considered a career as a Tour Guide? …

Glasnevin Cemetery Museum offers a one of a kind Transition Year Tour Guiding Programme, designed to give students an experience of the real life world of tour guiding, the tourism industry and customer service.

Students have the opportunity to develop skills in research and public speaking while building self-confidence.

The programme is split across two visits: during the first visit, students are given a demonstration by one of Glasnevin Cemetery Museum’s tour guides on the tourism industry, the golden rules of customer service and the skills needed to research and deliver a tour. All students are then given a topic to study back in the classroom.

When students return for their second visit they step into the shoes of the tour guide and present to their class at the grave of a historical figure. A certificate of completion is presented to all who take part in the TY Tour Guiding Programme.

The programme can be adapted for second or third level groups on request.
