"Sights and sounds along O'Connell Street" O´Connell Street Tip by Kentbein

O´Connell Street, Dublin: 12 reviews and 12 photos

  Interior of the GPO
by Kentbein

Favorite thing: OK, so we are now on mighty O'Connell Street. There's is a lot of history to O'Connell street, not the least of which was its inception several centuries ago as a speculation by one of the city's great land developers who took a chance with a novel, new idea to expand across the Liffey into the north. The gamble worked and he made a ton of money.

The city also had its famous revolution centered here, sited at the General Post Offie. There are zillions of GPO exterior photos to be had on VT, so I'll spare you the tedium and present only a selected few that may actually interest you.

Thebuilding still sevvesits intended purpose, as a post office. You can buy stamps and other posting merchandise, you can mail letters...........
