63 Merrion Square South, Dublin 2
Saturday, 11am—5am

Society House, the present number 63 Merrion Square, was acquired by the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland in 1917 and remains central to its identity as a learned society in the heart of Dublin’s historic centre. With its original ancillary buildings intact, coupled with its recently restored early-nineteenth century garden, it remains unique in Dublin as a complete town house complex representative of the late Georgian period.
