Design is Everything

Award winning GPO Witness History is located in the historical GPO (General Post Office) building.

The GPO was the communications hub of Ireland and headquarters of the men and women who took part in the 1916 Easter Rising. This hugely significant event in Irish history led eventually to the creation of the Irish Republic. This spectacular experience tells the story of the 1916 Easter Rising and modern Irish history through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts.

This iconic venue is also available for private functions and events.
