Leinster House was originally designed by Richard Castle for James Fitzgerald, 20th Earl of Kildare and Duke of Leinster. The house was purchased by the Dublin Society (RDS) in 1815 and became a centre for cultural development. The 3rd Dáil met there in September 1922 and since then it has been the seat of the Oireachtas, the Parliament of Ireland. Visitors will have an opportunity to tour the corridors of Leinster House and also visit both the Dáil and Seanad Chambers. Please note that this is a ticketed event.
