This building played a part in the 1916 Easter rising for Independence & served as the headquarters of the uprising. Besides that, its a beautiful building and on a main street in town, that you'd probably pass, so stop and see some history.

Was very surprised, great fast service, brilliant people who really care, this is THE BEST PLACE to exchange foreign currency, no fees are added like they do in banks!
