The GPO was built in 1818 on O'Connell Street by Francis Johnston. In 1916 an Irish Republic was proclaimed and a fire broke out as a result of the fighting. It was on the steps that the proclamation of Independence was read by the leaders of the rising. Most of the interior was destroyed by the flighting. In was renovated in 1929. The ceiling is spectacular and the inside contains a large area open postal hall. You can see shell marks of the 1916 rising. Admission is free and you can buy stamps. Lucky you... .
