    Familiar with Irish history, I had hoped someday to visit the final resting place of the Irish patriots. It was a warm, sunny summer day and the breeze through the poplars was absolutely soul filling....  more »

    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.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
