16 Moore Street, Dublin 1

Number 16 Moore Street is a traditional red-bricked building on the left-hand side as you walked up. It displays a small plaque over the ground floor level which says Éirí Amach na Casca 1916 or in English ‘The Easter Rising, 1916. It was into this house that the leaders had retreated after the shelling of the GPO and, when escape was no longer possible, it was from here that it was decided to surrender and cease hostilities.

At eight o clock on Friday evening 28 April 1916, with the GPO engulfeAd in flames, the Provisional Government of the Irish Republic and IRA men and women retreated from the building and endeavoured to make their way to the Four Courts' Garrison. They left the GPO by the side entrance in Henry Street and made their way under constant sniper fire to Moore Lane.
When they reached Moore Street they entered number five, Dunne's Butchers, and immediately began tunnelling from one house to another. The next morning, Saturday, they quickly realised that the wounded James Connolly, who had been placed on a panel door as a makeshift stretcher would not fit through the openings they had made. The men then placed Connolly in blankets and bundled him in great agony from house to house. When they reached number 16, Plunkets, a poultry shop, they placed him upstairs in the back room.

We didn't eat at the restaurant so we can't comment on that, but we found the room too hot and stuffy. But we could ask if heating could be turned off.staff we so lovely pleasant and attentive we would definitely stay again

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
