Iveagh House, now home to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, was first designed in 1736 by Richard Cassels and remodeled in the 19th Century, when a Portland Stone facade was added. Behind this facade is a large house dating from three distinct periods with a highly decorated sumptuous interior.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Iveagh House is a working Government office and some restrictions may need to be imposed on the day in relation to access and photography.

Designed by: Richard Cassels/Office of Public Works
Building Date: 1736
Location: Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, 78-81 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2
