Some messages from our happy customers
“If you want to find out more about the 1916 Easter Rising this is definitely the place to visit. Well put together displays, some interactive and informative videos throughout. When I went, there were plenty of children there, so clearly a good place to bring them. Lovely little cafe there too, with plenty of seating with friendly staff.” Sue.S TripAdvisor

“A real must see for anyone with an interest in Irish history and the cafe and shop are also worth a visit. Wonderful momentum of the birth of a nation.” Ross 1943 TripAdvisorGift Shop
