A visit to this historical place is worth the visit. It is still an active post office. Much of its history surrounds the fight for Irish independence in the early1900's. This is a "must-see" stop for history buffs.

We popped into the post office to buy stamps and were blown away by the beauty of the building. We didn't know that history behind it and didn't even realize what we were seeing until we looked closer. Also, our bus tour driver spoke of it on our trip to the Giant's Causeway so we learned more.

The best thing is that you will not need a lot of travel to see this place. it is right in the center. However, it looks to very special, and it is maybe the history being most interesting.

I did not enjoy the experience here, it seemed to be set up more on the level of a school trip for children. Although a lot of information was presented, I felt it was overpriced and there was so much more in Dubln to see for better use of time.

There really isn't much to this museum. It is still a working post office, which is kind of cool, it is right in the middle of the action so it is easy to identify and pop in for a visit. The fee is a little steep for what you get and the layout of the exhibits is kind of confusing... More

The GPO is an iconic building due to its pivotal role in the 1916 uprising. It is a functioning general post office and should be regarded as such. It is certainly worth while visiting but only if you have a keen interest in modern Irish history.
