Things to see:

Witnessing History Exhibition

To celebrate the centenary of the Easter Rising in April 1916, this immersive exhibition is open from March 2016 to bring to life the heroism of those who fought for Irish independence. Learn about the story of the rebels, through personal tales and photographs, who drove the armed revolt and flew the flag of an Irish republic on the building which was at the heart of the city’s communications.

The 1916 Proclamation

Visitors to this exhibition can also see the 1916 Proclamation, one of the most important documents of modern Irish history. GPO’s copy, written mostly by Padraig Pearse, is one of the very few to have survived the destruction of Easter Week and to have survived 100 years. Now on display at the GPO, it has never been so topical so make sure you don’t miss it!
