It isn’t just a regular old post office. This building, the steps and enormous pillars, played a significant role in the 1916 Easter Uprising and the Irish struggle for independence. There are still bullet marks on the pillars. The interior has been completely renovated and...More

If you are interested in the Irish struggle for Independence, this is a must do experience! There was so much information in the presentation that I was inspired to learn more!

If you are interested in seeing a sculpture of the mythical Cúchulainn then head for the General Post Office in Dublin. The statue commemorates this superhuman for his strength and actions on the battlefield. Our guide said the story of Cuchulainn is taught in school...More

We were interested in seeing The General Post. You can’t miss it as it is the largest building on O’Connell Street. It is a large classical building and it is the iconic symbol of Ireland’s failed 1916 Easter Rising. The impressive exterior is matched by...More

Ok, it's just a post office right? This building and this place is much more than a post office. The 1916 proclamation was read by Pearse from these steps. You can still see the bullet holes from the Rising. You don't go to see the...More

I was so excited to visit this place, that as soon as I got to the city center, GPO was my first stop. But what a disappointment. The entrance fee is €15. This exhibition does not worth that amount of money. There are so many...More

Love that the post office is still fully operational - we sent a postcard home from this historic landmark! The information is presented through a series of touchscreens (we didn't get the audio guide, so I can't comment, but I don't feel like we missed...More
