Visit the former Irish Houses of Parliament. This was the world’s first purpose-built two-chamber parliament house. Built in 1729, the building was purchased in 1803 by the Bank of Ireland (in the wake of the Irish Parliament’s abolition in 1801).
Access may not be allowed to the House of Lords Chamber if the area is closed for a private function.
There is a guided tour on Tuesdays only at 10.30 am.
