Very sad on a bleak November day to see the last resting place of so many brave men.A visit to Collins Barracks is a good education before going to the cemetery right behind the Barracks.

Final resting place of the 1916 leaders.
May 2019 • Couples
A small but well maintained and clean cemetery. Located behind the museum (Collins barracks).
Do take the time to visit here and pay respect to the 14 men / leaders of the 1916 rising who are buried here. A fitting memorial with the Irish proclamation and the Irish tri colour flying above the final resting place of these brave men.

1916 Leaders Resting Place
May 2019 • Couples
A quiet graveyard behind and a short walk from Collins Barracks Museum holds the mass grave of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin.
Peaceful and scerene.

A solemn quiet place
May 2019
We visited this cemetery to see the graves of the Easter Uprising victims. One of these brave men is our ancestor and we were very moved to find his grave and be able to spend a quiet moment here with him. The grounds are beautiful and lovely place to honor all the brave men who lost their lives for Ireland.

A wonderful experience

Having visited Kilmainham Gaol we decided to go along to Arbour Hill, the burial site of the leaders of the 1916 Rebellion. This is a beautiful, peaceful site; you wouldn't think it's in the middle of Dublin! It was a great end to the Kilmainham tour.

We stayed at Arbour Hill. This next to the prison and a nice place to reflect and remember those who came before us. Very somber and respectful.

Emotional visit

The burial place of the executed leaders of the Easter Rising was a must visit for me. Hi On the day of our visit the only other person present was a grounds keeper watering the grass of the mass grave.
To see the names of these patriots written in both Irish and English along the edge of the site, knowing their bodies were denied their families for a proper burial by the British Government was deeply moving. The cemetery is a short walk up the road from Collins Barracks on the north side of the Liffey. If you are Irish or of Irish ancestry a visit and a prayer is most appropriate.
