The Belgian Ambassador invites you to a Victorian Bourgeois house in Dublin.

The building that now hosts the Ambassador of Belgium was built in 1881. It is a very good example of Victorian semi-detached houses as originally it was 2 separate houses. At the time houses didn’t have a number but rather a name. One of them was called Leighton (left) and the other one Olney. The 2 houses were bought by the Belgian government in 2 phases, the first house in 1950 and the second in 1967.

The Residence will be open to visitors from 11am to 4pm with short tours (20mins) regularly, showing visitors not only the architectural history of the building, but also giving a unique behind-the-scenes look at the diplomatic events that take place at the Residence.
