Arbour Hill Cemetery

What was once a parade ground for the Arbour Hill prison is now the burial plot of 14 of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising, the armed insurrection that eventually led to the establishment of an independent Irish Republic.

The terrace, which is made of Wicklow granite, leads to a wall inscribed with the words of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic in both the Irish and English languages. In front of this wall, you’ll find the burial plot of the leaders of the 1916 Rising.
