Tours of Mount Jerome Crematorium
The opportunity to go behind the scenes and learn about the crematorium has been one of the most popular events included on the Festival programme in previous years. Open Day and Guided Tours of the Crematorium take place from 1pm on Sunday 20th May with the last tour at 4pm. Tours will be done in groups of 15 at a time on a first come first served basis.
Please meet at The Tea Rooms which are around to the left of the church at the top of the avenue. See Map Below
In the summer of 2011, Mount Jerome proudly became the first crematorium in Ireland to install a filtration system to capture pollutants generated by the cremation process.
Effectively what this means is that all our emissions are “scrubbed” to ensure any harmful emissions are removed and that we comply with the latest EU environmental legislation.
We have also installed a brand new cremator which is the most energy efficient in Ireland. Our carbon footprint has been reduced by 30%. We are also the first Irish crematorium to install an automatic coffin loading system.
In summary the new crematorium equipment at Mount Jerome far surpasses any historical cremator equipment currently in use in Ireland. We are now the most environmentally friendly crematorium in Ireland today.
