The Basics

Visitors to Dublin City Hall can step inside to admire the interior, which features columns, a rotunda, and a statue of Daniel O’Connell, the first Catholic mayor of Dublin and a champion of Catholic emancipation. The Story of the Capital exhibition is located in the vaults and chronicles Dublin’s growth from Viking times to the present day.

Many history-themed walking tours make stops at Dublin City Hall, as do hop-on hop-off bus tours. Because of its connection to the Hellfire Club—the notorious 18th-century secret society associated with Satan worship and sex was supposedly founded on the site where Dublin City Hall now stands—it sometimes features on haunted history tours of the city too.
