Interactive and Immersive Experiences

Our team provides your students with a connection to the history of Ireland and the nations’ journey since 1913.  Our tour guides will give students an insight into understanding the complexity of the Irish, their past and the journey to the present. 
 
The GPO Museum is an award-winning, engaging, interactive and immersive experience which richly deserves to be on your school itinerary. We have compiled a range of tours that are closely linked to the Primary SESE curriculum and both the Junior and Senior History curricula. We also offer specific tailor-made tours for third level and language schools. The GPO was headquarters of the 1916 Easter Rising and an integral part of the experience is the focus on the events of this rebellion which ultimately changed the course of Irish history.  Students also have the opportunity to reflect on how the events of the War of Independence, Irish Civil War and the “Troubles” have shaped Ireland over the past 100 years.
 
In essence, the museum brings to life an unbiased account of modern Irish history in an iconic location with authentic and personal stories that brings history so close it comes alive.
