You'll learn the story of how a small band of Irish patriots declared Ireland's independence to the world in Easter 1916. This led to one of the bloodiest confrontations with the British forces that Dublin had ever seen. After a week of intense fighting the rebellion was quashed and the rebellion leaders were captured and executed in Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin city.

It was the execution of these men that inspired others towards the Irish War of Independence where Michael Collins and the IRA battled against the British for Ireland's freedom, but once they had achieved this goal internal divisions lead to the Civil War in 1922.

The 1916 Rebellion Walking tour take you to visit the very sites of the most famous battles in the 1916 Easter Rising as Lorcan Collins explains and illustrates the key events of these turbulent times.
