Award winning GPO Witness History is located in the historical GPO (General Post Office) building on O’Connell Street, Dublin. The GPO building was the communications hub of Ireland and headquarters of the men and women who took part in the 1916 Easter Rising. The historic and tumultuous Easter Rising set into motion an unstoppable chain of events which would ultimately lead to the creation of the Irish Republic. This spectacular experience focuses on the Rising, the aftermath and how Ireland has developed since. The history of modern Ireland is brought to life through electronic touch screens, video, audiovisual booths, sound and authentic artefacts. Guests can relax afterwards in the café and browse the gift shop which overlooks the courtyard.
