What people are saying:

The Dublin Post Office (General Post Office, Dublin, Ireland: Ard-Oifig an Phoist) is the post office of the Republic of Ireland. The Dublin Post Office is one of the most famous buildings in Ireland and the last Georges-style building in Dublin, which opened on January 6, 1818. The post office, which was the command of the Rebels during the Easter uprising of 1916, was badly damaged during the war. Now the Dublin Post Office is a symbol of Irish freedom. The Post Office is located in the most prosperous area - O'conner, near the tourist area, which attracts large numbers of visitors. The Post Office has office buildings (not outside), the Post Office area and the Museum Visiting Area, which requires paid visits and batches of entry. There are two huge ones in the middle of the business area. Postboxes for mailing credit. Post offices do not sell postcards, people who are used to sending postcards need to buy in the nearby gift shop, and here to buy stamps to send mail.

    For students of modern Irish history, this is an iconic location -- a key site in the Easter rebellion. Bullet holes in the columns and walls still commemorate the gun battle which took place here.
