The State Apartments

  Dublin Castle, off Dame St, D2      (+353)(0)1 645 8813     more than a year ago
These lavish Georgian rooms provided the residential and public quarters for the Viceregal Court. As such, they were at the heart of Anglo Irish social life in the 18th & 19th Centuries. Today St Patrick's Hall, with its stunning painted ceiling, is the venue for Ireland's Presidencies of the EU, Presidential inaugurations and prestigious functions - it was here that President John F. Kennedy received an honourary doctorate. Queen Victoria, King George V and Margaret Thatcher have all overnighted in the Apartments' sumptuous bedrooms. Guided Tours available.
