  • The monument in him even worth the visit. But the most interesting is the Museum located in the sub floor. It is immersed in these tragic moments of the revolution of 1916. To do can be before you go visit Kilmainham Gaol.

  • Where: General Post Office - Dublin, Ireland What: The main city Post office How was it: It was nice, different than what we have back home. They have statues inside and probably the best decorated Post office we have seen. I forget what brought us here, perhaps we were trying to mail a postcard for people back home. It's quite close to the spire and Henry street (pedestrian street with many shops) Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4 Recommend: Yes, give it a quick visit while you sight see the Spire on your way to Henry street !
  • The staff are idiots. The woman at counter 9 didn't know you could send letter through the post! Then she rips open the envelope I'm trying to post and sends me on my way. The ape at counter 3 should have learned some manners before he left the zoo. God help anyone who has to call this museum pretending to function as a post office their local.
  • lovely building, very nice exterior and the staff are lovely to deal with when sending post. Too bad such a beautiful building has to be right across from anne summers; a lingerie shop. Doubt socialist James Connolly would be proud of that fact.
  • There is tons of history here. It's quite awesome to see the bullet holes and be here on the Millenium celebration of the Easter rising.
  • Still has the bullet holes. Amazing piece of history. The fact that it still is used as a post office seems like poetry. Nice building to take a look at.
