Law Society of Ireland, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7
Saturday, 10am—5pm
Sunday, 10am—5pm

The Law Society of Ireland is delighted to once again open its doors as part of Open House Dublin! This is a wonderful opportunity to visit the historic and architecturally renowned Blue Coat School. Discover how the building’s initial use and design as a school has been adapted to modern day needs while at the same time maintaining its intrinsic character. See the beautiful building and grounds and hear about its context within the history and location of the surrounding area and the City of Dublin. Imagine the vision, sadly not implemented, of architect Thomas Ivory who is notable for being the first Irish born (Cork) architect to receive a private commission of note in the city in the 18th century.
