The Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland (‘Society House’) is located at 63 Merrion Square, in the heart of the historic eighteenth-century South Georgian core of Dublin. Neighbours with some of the nation’s key cultural institutions, including the National Gallery and the National Museum, and situated in one of the most exclusive business addresses, Society House is also minutes away from the city’s premier shopping district.

Although surrounded by streets of fine redbrick terraces, Society House is unique in Dublin, being the only fully intact Georgian town house and garden in the city, from the coal cellars under the front pavement, through to the restored garden and original coach house and stables (now operated as self-catering holiday accommodation) at the rear of the property.

Society House is a unique venue for a range of events: there are two large reception rooms (first floor), a library (ground floor), a 100 seat fully equipped theatre (basement), and a private walled garden. In recent months we have hosted conferences, meetings, book-launches, literature readings and recitals, and pop-up shops. With its spacious reception rooms and beautiful eighteenth-century decoration, is it the perfect venue for boutique weddings and private parties.
