  • Worthy of a visit, but a walk by will suffice. If you are a poli sci nerd, go for the tour.
  • We took the tour twice with visitors from overseas and loved it! Looking forward to our next visit.
  • This complex of Government Buildings situated on Upper Merrion Street, Dublin is where the government ministers and staff have their offices. It originally housed two government departments, the Local Government Board and the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction. At one time it also housed the Royal College of Science and part of the State Laboratory. The complex was completed in March 1922 and was immediately occupied by the new Irish Free State government. The building was refurbished in the late 20th century to accommodate the Department of the Taoiseach, the Department of Finance and the Office of the Attorney General. It is decorated with many fine artworks created by Irish artists and international artists living and working in Ireland. It is the building where international dignitaries and heads of state meet with the Taoiseach and government. It is possible to visit the buildings on Saturdays from 10:30 to 13:30 hours. These are guided tours accepting up to 20 visitors. The free tour takes approximately 40 minutes to complete. The free tickets can be collected on the day from the National Gallery of Ireland, Merrion Square West, Dublin 2, from 10am. The National Gallery of Ireland is a 5 minute walk from the complex and is located on the same street. Location: Beside the Merrion Square West entrance to Leinster House and opposite the The Merrion Hotel. The building is wheelchair friendly.
