Liberty Hall

Once the headquarters of the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union, Liberty Hall served as the place where the Proclamation of the Irish Republic was printed. Today, it stands as a symbol of the fight for workers’ rights and Irish independence.

Boland’s Mill

Boland’s Mill was another key location during the 1916 rebellion. It was occupied by Éamon de Valera and his men, who held out for a week before surrendering.

The General Post Office (GPO)

The GPO served as the headquarters of the leaders of the Easter Rising. Despite heavy bombardment, its facade remained intact and it remains an iconic symbol of the rebellion.

St. Stephen’s Green

Commanded by Michael Mallin and Countess Markievicz, St. Stephen’s Green was one of the main outposts during the rebellion. The park still bears the marks of this historic event.

Four Courts

Occupied by a battalion of Volunteers during the rebellion, the Four Courts was a strategic location due to its proximity to the city center.

Kilmainham Gaol

Many leaders of the rebellion were imprisoned and executed here, making it a poignant symbol of the struggle for Irish independence.

Mount Street Bridge

The site of one of the rebellion’s most significant battles, where a small group of rebels held off a much larger force of British soldiers.

City Hall

Captured by rebels on the first day of the Rising, City Hall was one of the key locations in the city center.

Moore Street

The final headquarters of the leaders of the Rising, where they decided to surrender to prevent further loss of civilian life.


Phibsborough, particularly the area around the North Dublin Union (now the site of the Mater Hospital), was the scene of heavy fighting during the rebellion. A young rebel, Sean Healy, was killed in the area.

Collins Barracks Museum

Now home to the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks is a historic building that was used by British forces during the rebellion. Today, it houses an exhibition on the 1916 Rising, providing a comprehensive overview of the events and their impact on Ireland’s path to independence.
