James Connolly Visitor Centre

Áras Uí Chonghaile is a visitor centre dedicated to telling the story of James Connolly. Best known for his role in the 1916 Easter Rising, Connolly was also a leading Trade Unionist, Socialist, and Republican.

This interactive exhibition tells the story of his life, from his birth in Edinburgh to meeting his wife Lily in Dublin, to traveling across the United States spreading the word of trade unionism.

There is also an exclusive Historic Collection which is a unique insight into those times and presents a display of original art and artifacts unavailable anywhere else in the world.  This collection of Irish memorabilia, artifacts, and artwork is a must-see for everyone who has an interest in the Irish past.
