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.
The virtual tour of no. 63 Merrion Square, led by Dr Conor Lucey, architectural historian and RSAI President offers a knowledgeable insight into the history of the house, its first tenants and its unique architectural features.
This tour will be available to view online from 9 October. Check back here!
