Freemasons Hall

The Freemasons Hall in Dublin City is a mid-Victorian building from the 1860s and features a prize-winning design by the Birmingham architect, Edward Holmes. It has been the headquarters of Freemasonry in Ireland ever since.

The building houses a number of meeting rooms, each one of which is decorated in a different architectural style, including an Egyptian style room and a mock Gothic Room.

It also contains administrative offices, a library and a museum. It is home to an exhibition relating to Freemasonry in Ireland from the early 18th century.

The museum in the building is open Monday to Saturday from 9:00am to 6:00pm and is free of charge.


Tours of the building are provided every weekday during the months of June, July and August.
