The City Hall, Dublin, originally the Royal Exchange, is a civic building in Dublin, Ireland. It was built between 1769 and 1779 to the designs of architect Thomas Cooley and is a notable example of 18th-century architecture in the city.

To commemorate the centenary of 1916, are also showcasing one of the original proclamations from 1916, kindly gifted to the citizens of Dublin in the 1950s, by the family of Elizabeth O’Farrell. We will also feature an exhibition on Sir. Robert Shaw, Lord Mayor of Dublin from 1815-1816.

Opening Hours:                Monday to Saturday 10.00am to 5.15pm

We are closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Due to the celebrations of the centenary we will be open on Easter Monday.
