Optional GPO Witness History Experience
Tuesday 27th of June
GPO Witness History Experience
A private evening at the GPO Witness History Experience – Optional Night/Ticketed Event
GPO Witness History is a brand new permanent visitor attraction in the iconic GPO building on O’Connell Street, Dublin 1. The centre will open privately on this evening for Congress delegates who have purchased a ticket.
This highly immersive and engaging exhibition puts you right inside the GPO during Easter Week in 1916. History will come to life as you experience events from both sides of the conflict and through the eyes of bystanders caught in the crossfire through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts – many previously unseen.
After the exhibition, we will gather in the glass walled dining area overlooking the courtyard. Light ‘super bowl’ style meal with drinks will be served in a semi seated casual setting.
The events of Easter Week shaped this country’s history and the GPO was at the centre of it all.
