Overview
The 1916 Rebellion is a crucial moment in Irish History and the event is still very much a part of Dublin today. Step into the past with a local and visit the spots where rebels fought for the freedom of their country. Plus hear about the events that brought Ireland to the point of rebellion. Start your local experience hearing about the Great Irish Famine. From the memorial to the ships that transported Irish people to America, this sad event is still remembered all over the city. Your local host will explain how the famine drove the Irish people to rebel on Easter Monday 1916. Swing by Arbour Hill Cemetary and Prison which is the burial site of 14 of the leaders of the rebellion. Then finish your historical experience in front of Kilmainham Gaol. Now a museum, this impressive building is a former prison and the spot where the rebels were imprisoned and executed.
