GPO Witness History is a brand new immersive exhibition in the iconic GPO building. 

The GPO, in the heart of Dublin’s city centre, was the communications hub of Ireland and the centre of events during the 1916 Easter Rebellion - more commonly referred to as the 1916 Rising.

This new world class attraction brings to life the personal stories of those involved and impacted upon by this event, which was the catalyst for the foundation of the democratic state.

Highlights include:
  • Read the 1916 proclamation – one of the most important documents of modern Irish history
  • Experience eye witness accounts of the dramatic events
  • Observe authentic artefacts of the era
  • Café and retail gift store overlooking the historic courtyard
