Itinerary
Stop At:  
GPO Museum
GPO Witness History is a brand new permanent visitor attraction in the iconic GPO (General Post Office) building on O’Connell Street, Dublin. This highly immersive and engaging exhibition puts you right inside the GPO during Easter Week in 1916. History will come to life as you experience events from both sides of the conflict and through the eyes of bystanders caught in the crossfire through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts – many previously unseen. You’ll be immersed in the action as you compose newspaper reports, examine the original copy of the Proclamation and send Morse code to declare the Irish Republic by radio. After the exhibition, you can relax and reflect in the café and retail store overlooking the courtyard. The courtyard is also home to a commissioned sculpture called ‘They are of us all’, commemorating the forty children who died during the Easter Rising.

Not For The Claustrophobic!

Once again, a museum in the basement. Found it dark, claustrophobic and confusing. No obvious signs indicating which direction to go or path to exit. No one available in museum to ask for help. From experience with another basement museum, I kept the entrance door within sight and left that way within a few minutes. Total waste of time and money if you’re any way claustrophobic. I think customers should be given a warning to that effect. Very disappointed.

Really disappointed that Viator omitted to tell us that you need to book in for a specific time. I actually emailed you guys to ask if there were specific time slots, to which you replied "no", just arrive between 10am and 4pm. So not correct.. Book directly with GPO

Went to visit the GPO Museum with my husband and granddaughter we thoroughly enjoyed it. The audio handsers made it all so easy to follow along with the short 3D film makes very interesting viewing . With the modern state of the art set up we were very impressed indeed. It was very relaxing and so much information. We enjoyed a lil snack afterwards in the very modern and spotless cafe followed by a lil shopping for some pressies which were very reasonably priced. This trio is great value for money and you could easily pass a few hours away at your leisure. Well done to all ...this venue makes me very proud to be Irish. Go raibh mile maith agat
