  • Firstly admire the façade from the opposite sidewalk, then get closer (attention, busy boulevard) and you make the impacts of bullets and shrapnel, witnesses from the start of the revolt here. (see the wonderful movie called: Michael Collins). You will be seized upon entry by the Majesty of these places coupled with use always very current. Beautiful oak furniture always serve the customer, banks are also time, as all the rest of the furniture. And the customer is normal as usual to use such a historical monument. And why not? Home no one would dare put any graffiti.

  • We visited around Christmastime so there were lots of decorations. I loved the old fashioned feel of the decorations. It really matched the old decor of the place. Really a beautiful place. Can imagin...  more »
  • I was absolutely bowled over by the quality of the exhibition at the GPO. It is a new exhibition, but richly deserves some kind of award. I don't see how it can be improved. I stayed there for 90 minu...  more »

  • 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.
