The Freemasons’ Hall, home of the Grand Lodge of Freemasons of Ireland, was purpose build in the 1860’s. This Victorian building incorporates quite unique meeting rooms in Classical, Egyptian and Gothic / Tudor styles. There is a museum where Masonic regalia and artefacts are displayed and a library and archive for those interested in learning more about the history of the Order, which dates back to 1725. Portraits of Past Grand Masters and Officers are displayed throughout the Hall and the stairway is adorned by stained glass windows executed by Joshua Clarke & Sons. It may be best described as a living museum, enjoyed by many visitors each year, while continuing to function as a centre for the charitable, ceremonial and social activities of Freemasons in Ireland. This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging tour and early booking is advised as places are limited.
