(95+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Sitting grandly in Phoenix Park, Áras an Uachtaráin serves as the official residence of the President of Ireland. Though the building started as a brick house for the park's ranger in 1751, today this stately structure resembles the iconic White House in Washington, D.C. Admire the grand exterior or pop into the visitor's center to arrange a guided tour, which grants access to some of the state rooms and includes lots of information about the history of the park, house, and presidency of Ireland. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Dublin holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Áras an Uachtaráin and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
