Discover the story of Cabbage Garden Cemetery, one of Dublin’s most historic graveyards.
Located in the heart of the Liberties, this cemetery is just a stone’s throw or bell toll away from some of the city’s most iconic heritage sites, such as St Patrick’s Cathedral and Marsh’s Library. Cabbage Garden has served as the final resting place of many Huguenots and Church of Ireland residents of the city since the 17th century. Those buried here navigated Dublin City during its rapid development during the 1600s, and walked the same routes across the Liffey that we follow today. They contributed to society by working as sword cutlers, timber merchants and apothecaries, meeting the needs of an ever-expanding city.
