  • Peaceful cemetery located at the rear of Collins Barracks. It's where you can find the burial place of the executed leaders of the 1916 Rising and a 1916 memorial. There's also access to the Irish UN Veterans Association memorial garden.
  • Very quiet place, a burial site of 14 leaders of Irish Easter rising. It's a hidden spot, but a worth visit you you are around Arbour Hill or visiting National Museum.
  • This is one of the few places in the general area that does not appear to suffer from anti-social behaviour so you can feel safe when you visit. The main reason to visit the military cemetery is that it is the burial place of fourteen of the executed leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising. Among those buried there are Patrick Pearse, James Connolly and Major John MacBride. The leaders were executed in Kilmainham Gaol and their bodies were transported to Arbour Hill for burial. The graves are located under a low mound on a terrace of Wicklow granite in what was once the old prison yard. The grave site is surrounded by a limestone wall on which the names are inscribed in Irish and English. On the prison wall opposite the grave site is a plaque with the names of other people who were killed in 1916. A little doorway to the right of the memorial area leads to the Irish United Nations Veterans' Association house and memorial garden which is also worth a visit.
  • Place where most of the 1916 leaders are burried. Quite & peaceful
