I was very privileged to have access to the church which is a magnificent building. Sadly it is closed to the general public. However when we arrived the metal latticed gates were aglow with the winter sunshine. On entering I was delightfully surprised with the richness and heritage of this sacred building. The sanctuary was magnificent in colour; splendour and... More

A tranquil and solemn setting within an easy walk from Collins Barracks / LUAS red line and most definitely somewhere everyone should take the time to visit. We went on a sunny autumn afternoon and despite a few other visitors could feel an overall sense of calmness and peace. The leaders' gravesite is a simple plot with the amazing backdrop... More

Easily accessible from Collins Barracks Museum, on the Luas Red Line, Arbour Hill is probably one of Dublin's least visited historical sites. Simply and tastefully laid out, it gives visitors the opportunity to sit and contemplate our history close to the middle of our capital city.

We went to see the 1916 tour organised by OPW and it was fantastic. Can't believe it is free as Eamonn,the guide, took us on a trip back into the past for an hour and twenty minutes. We enjoyed it a lot as he went through the whole proclamation, pointing out a lot of things we never thought of of... More

A very thought provoking place as this is the 1916 leaders gravesite. Well worth the few minutes it takes to walk to from the back of Collins Barracks. At the rear of Arbour Hill there is a little gate that takes you through to a beautiful little garden belonging to the United Nations Veterans Association that worth a visit.

Went on the tour with a knowledgeable local guide. Very interesting history and well worth a visit. It is also used as a local park by residents - worth walking around at your leisure also.

I'm so glad I visited Arbour Hill, quite hard to find but well worth the effort. A very peaceful place, thought provoking and sad.

To the rear of Collins Barracks(there is a back gate you can use, which not too many people know about) and next door to an active prison, is a church and memorial graveyard commemorating firstly a number of leaders of the famous 1916 Easter rising in Dublin. But also many other graves, notably a number of British military ones, of... More
