Hello! My brother, wife, and I are coming to Dublin at the end of the month. We are rather obsessed with the events of the Easter Rising, so our question is - can you recommend the best tour that covers all the main battle sites (GPO, Four Courts, St. Steven's Green, Bridge Street, etc) as well as Kilmainhaim and Arbour Hill? Or is it better for us to just walk the sites ourselves, without a tour? Thanks!

Hi Steven,

It's great that you'll be visiting Dublin so soon!

The 1916 Rising has had a lasting impact on the town and there are many ways to explore and discover the places and sites in Dublin that played an important part, as well as an amazing exhibition in the General Post Office.

From the 1916 Rebellion Walking Tours, to the 1916 Freedom tour, to the Visitor Attraction in the GPO, there are some choices to make! The tours will immerse you in the history and there is the possibility to visit the final resting places of some of those who participated in this fascinating and impressive part of the history of Ireland, or indeed Kilmainham Goal where many were held.

If you would like to get closer and learn more about the life of one of the main leaders of that time, the Michael Collins walking tour will bring you closer to the man himself.

If you're interested in finding your own way around this part of Dublin's history, a virtual tour of some of the most important sites was created especially for the 2016 Centenary of the 1916 Uprising and this can help you create a route of your own, where you can pick those sites that mean the most to you. It is an immersive experience, make sure your speakers are on!

But if you choose a guided tour, or create your own, or if indeed you do both, the Easter Rising is a very physical part of Dublin and you will see subtle and large signs of it wherever you go.

Warm regards,
Cornelia

It is indeed Steven!

Are you planning to visit other places besides Dublin during your stay?
