Before you visit the GPO Museum, your Private Guide will help you understand this complex subject, sharing an insider’s perspective into life in Ireland under British rule. Together, you will recreate the events of the War of Independence, Easter Uprising, the Anglo-Irish Treaty, and more. On this walking tour of Dublin, one of the 2 capitals on the island of Ireland, you will see the iconic Molly Malone Statue, Trinity College and the Famine Memorial - a touching reminder of the nation’s hardships. The guide will also show you the Custom House, which was occupied and buried by the IRA in 1921. You will pass a memorial to James Connolly, an Irish republican who was imprisoned and executed in the infamous Kilmainham Gaol prison, and monuments to other rebellion leaders such as Daniel 'the Liberator' O'Connel, William Smith O'Brien and Jim Larkin,. The guided tour will end in front of the historic building of the General Post Office, the former IRA headquarters. We provide skip-the-line tickets to the GPO Museum so you can step inside and explore its exhibitions at your own pace with the museum’s audio guide.
