We went along after a visit to Kilmainham and it was a moving experience to see some of the most pivotal men in our history buried side my side in a mass grave. A very serene and peaceful place to take five minutes to reflect on the bravery of those men. Would highly recommend a visit

During our recent visit to Dublin we visited the cemetery to complete our journey through history. We had already visited the general post office and Kilmainham Gaol and felt we had to visit the cemetery where the rebels had been buried after execution at the Gaol. The cemetery has a very poignant display in the remembrance of the 14 executed.... More

I was very privileged to have access to the church which is a magnificent building. Sadly it is closed to the general public. However when we arrived the metal latticed gates were aglow with the winter sunshine. On entering I was delightfully surprised with the richness and heritage of this sacred building. The sanctuary was magnificent in colour; splendour and... More

A tranquil and solemn setting within an easy walk from Collins Barracks / LUAS red line and most definitely somewhere everyone should take the time to visit. We went on a sunny autumn afternoon and despite a few other visitors could feel an overall sense of calmness and peace. The leaders' gravesite is a simple plot with the amazing backdrop... More

Easily accessible from Collins Barracks Museum, on the Luas Red Line, Arbour Hill is probably one of Dublin's least visited historical sites. Simply and tastefully laid out, it gives visitors the opportunity to sit and contemplate our history close to the middle of our capital city.

We went to see the 1916 tour organised by OPW and it was fantastic. Can't believe it is free as Eamonn,the guide, took us on a trip back into the past for an hour and twenty minutes. We enjoyed it a lot as he went through the whole proclamation, pointing out a lot of things we never thought of of... More

A very thought provoking place as this is the 1916 leaders gravesite. Well worth the few minutes it takes to walk to from the back of Collins Barracks. At the rear of Arbour Hill there is a little gate that takes you through to a beautiful little garden belonging to the United Nations Veterans Association that worth a visit.

Went on the tour with a knowledgeable local guide. Very interesting history and well worth a visit. It is also used as a local park by residents - worth walking around at your leisure also.
