Located on O’Connell Street, the General Post Office is undoubtedly the most important symbol of the 1916 Easter Rising and has been renovated countless times since 1929, after it was heavily damaged in 1916.

The GPO is home to a museum chronicling the events of that rebellion and the influential figures that made it happen. It is a must-see for anyone interested in modern Irish history – the perfect way to spend a day in Dublin in lieu of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade cancellation?

As well as being celebrated as a structure that encapsulates Irish independence, the GPO is also known as one of the oldest operating postal headquarters in the world.
