  • The GPO museum is attached to the GPO. It has a fantastic exhibition of the Easter Uprising. There's a lot of information about what happened that Easter week in 1916. The weeks and days leading up to Easter Sunday. There is a vast amount of information provided. You will be a lot more informed when you leave. There is also a film, you can sit down & watch. They act out how they used the GPO as the main centre/headquarters in Easter 1916. It's well done & informative. As you walk round the museum, you can see lots of items they used back then. From the uniforms the men & women wore. The old bikes they cycled round Dublin & beyond on. The weapons & ammunition. The old telephones, Morse code machines and other communication tools. The old ink pots, old letters written around that time. Old typewriters, old prams with old cans of food eaten then. And much/many more items all in display cabinets. Also lots of digital machines as you walk round. You can tap & read the different information. Brought a 7 yr old & a 9 yr old to museum. They loved it. Also you can get your photo taken at end. Wearing the old style hats if you wish for the photo. The photo is taken inside but it comes out that you're standing outside GPO. Very well done. 😊
  • On Sundays there is no other option to get stamps except the machine outside. It works only with coins and give only a 10 stamp option. International costs 17 Eur. Shops around or the books store don't have international stamps. Bookstore had national. Needs improvement/solution.
