Located in central Dublin and close to St. Stephen’s Green, Leinster House is the seat of the Irish Parliament.
Georgian Leinster House is currently undergoing extensive conservation and restoration works. However, Culture Night 2018 provides a unique opportunity for visitors to view the chambers of Dáil and Seanad Éireann and visit an exhibition on Women’s Suffrage under the banner of Vótáil 100.
Leinster House was built in the mid-18th century by the James Fitzgerald, the Duke of Leinster. In 1815 it was purchased by the Royal Dublin Society and in 1924 the State bought Leinster House from the Royal Dublin Society and the Oireachtas was able to begin adapting the House to its needs.
Please note: The website link for booking tours for the Houses of the Oireachtas on Culture Night will go live on 24 August at 12pm.
