Pricing based on group of 4 travellers

Get transported back in time to the Easter Rising of 1916 during this immersive and interactive tour. On board a custom bus, travel to key locations of the revolution, reliving the events and learning of the steps leading up to them through your actor guides.

Start by climbing on board a custom bus outfitted as a vehicle under siege in 1916. Your guides, 2 professional actors, are members of the ICA—the Irish Citizen Army—and the Cumann na mBan, the women's faction of the Irish Volunteers. As your bus rolls through the city, learn from the rebels themselves about the events that led up to the Easter Rising of 1916 that established Irish independence from British rule.

Throughout your tour, you'll listen to real speeches that prompted change at the time and see how revolutionary leaders inspired those following them. Make stops at key battle locations of the Easter Rising, including the Four Courts and South Dublin Union, finally arriving at the General Post Office that acted as the headquarters for the rebels during Easter week. It was outside this building that Padraig Pearse read the Proclamation of Independence that declared a free and equal Ireland for all.

Excellent tour! Very emotional at times. The actors did an amazing job of relaying the events of 1916, and gave it their all... The driver manoeuvred the bus through some tricky locations. Cant thank everyone enough.
