Rebels Rising Tour 

Please note that due to Covid-19 restrictions this tour is currently not available.

The GPO Musuem is a must-see for anyone with an interest in the Easter Rising. See history come to life before your eyes as you witness first-hand the story of the 1916 Rising in its historic setting of the General Post Office – the scene of the rebellion that sparked the beginning of the final push in a nation’s struggle for independence.

Our guides will bring you on an emotional journey that brings the personalities behind the tales to life, sharing the stories of all the people who were affected by the Rising – Rebels, Crown Forces, Postal Workers and Civilians alike.

Join us every day at 11:00 and 14:30 (Sundays at 14:30 only) and witness history like you’ve never seen it before. Book your tickets here. Patrons are welcome to enjoy our exhibition at their own leisure after the tour. You can also relax with an amazing cup of tea/coffee and a delicious selection of sandwiches and cakes in our café.
