Very insightful into the rising of 1916, found the layout quite disorganised but the short documentary was interesting.

We took the guided tour word Ciara and enjoyed our trip down memory lane while in Dublin This is a trip we should have done earlier this year but every person in Dublin should get there at some time in the next year or two

Visited the 1916 commemoration display on a recent trip to Dublin. Was very insightful with so much research done. Loads of interactive exhibits and a superb 3D video depicting the entire Easter rising. Would be great for anyone looking information on Irish history

I sent a package home. This place is massive from the outside and you can't miss it. It's on the main street going N and S. Staff were extremely friendly.

This was by far the best museum we visited in Ireland. It did a wonderful job of explaining recent Irish history. The museum has been open less than one year.

This is an excellent exhibition and portrays with the aid of a number of different mediums what it was to be in Dublin during the Easter Rising of 1916. The venue is very particular as this building was the rebel headquarters and during the major action had many of the major rebel participants. Signatories of the Irish Proclamation were here...

I just love to visit the GPO, I brought my children to the 1916 celebrations here, both in the GPO itself and on O'Connell Street just outside! More recently I was there just under two weeks ago. We went into Dublin to visit the Henry Street lights being turned on, and, you can't visit that end of Dublin without walking... More

The general post office is one of the iconic buildings in Dublin. The Christmas displays were definitely worth a visit.

The 1916 exhibition is well worth a visit in the actual GPO building the was the centre of the Easter rising of 1916. This museum has all the detail you would expect and all very interesting to all ages. There is also a very nice cafe and shop. All well worth a visit
