City Hall (Dublin)

Dublin’s City Hall fulfils its role as the municipal seat of government while also offering visitors to the capital a wonderful selection of interesting old artefacts on show. A history of Ireland and Dublin as the administrative centre through a cohesive story told within the hall’s vaults. The collection itself is comprehensive and fairly vast, with entry costing a mere 4 euros or less if booked online. Refreshments are available during and after the exhibition, which covers the period of Ireland’s Anglo-Norman occupation in the 12th century and onward.

Within the architectural splendour of the stone and marble constructions are shown off to their fullest, while information on popular activities such as the Dublin Culture Trail is available from the reception area.
