This is an old Georgian / Victorian building in a prominent busy part of town. So its a distinctive buildling. Unfortunately it was closed so we could only look at it from the outside.

I had my first visit to this location this week despite living in the city for years. I was very pleasantly surprised by the way the exhibition was laid out and the quality of the exhibits. The fascinating story of the city is well told through time with interesting explanatory panels, audio visuals and well displayed objects. The coffee shop... More

A clear demonstration of 1000 years Dublin. The movies start when you sit down. All produced in 2000.

I hadnt been inside City Hall in Dublin for many years. What a beautiful building that most people just walk past. Drop in and admire the architecture and have a coffee on the lower floor. Clean toilets add to the attraction! Quite a bonus in the city centre. I didnt get to the museum in the vasement this time but... More

Lovely way to learn about irish history and a pretty building from inside. Very small but elegant in its own way. Nice in rainy or cold weather or if your just on the way to christs church

It looks like a normal city hall, however, if you just take five minutes to go inside, you will see why this city hall is special. The inside is stunning. And free.

Beautiful building. Murals describing history and the statues are nice, too. We were able to attend a gala and it was beautiful and humbling to stand in the place where so many great people have stood before and recognize the history.

I overheard a tour guide saying this place was amazing as I was coming out of the side of Dublin castle. It's an old building for taxes I think. Obviously has different purposes over the years & now hosts weddings & events too. Downstairs is a wonderful exhibition of the history of Dublin & Ireland. Some video loops which kids... More

The Dublin City Hall is right next to Dublin Castle. They offer free tours or you can do it on your own. The Free Guided tour schedule is limited, so check it first. I always learn more listening from an expert rather than doing it on my own. The building is of course an awesome architecture. If you miss the... More
