This was free to visit and you could walk around as you liked. Some interesting statues and a lovely place to spend a short time in.

From the outside it looks like pretty usual City Hall, but it's pretty nice from the inside. You can go to the entrance hall for free, which is nice. There's some exhibition downstairs for a small entrance fee, but I wouldn't know about it since I didn't go. Central location, so you'll probably be near it anyway.

Save for a rainy day when you don't want to go to the pub but want an accurate view of Dublin city's history. Excellent mini videos, plus artifacts, plus cool shelter in the summer and warmth in the winter equal an outstanding venue in bad weather! Of most interest are the videos in the 3rd room of The Troubles (exceptional... More

The building is beautiful. The preconditions for an exhibition like their should be the best. A long and interesting history and good intentions. I met a completely uncommitted seller at the entrance, who showed that she did not like her job. Inside the exhibition were a number of audiovisual presentations that did not work, and the experience was very truncated.... More

Nice place to be into the film about Connolly, and history of independance. Nice exhibition about history of Dublin, and urbanism through centuries from 18th century till today.

Immerse yourself in a quick, enjoyable review of Dublin's city hall. Start upstairs with the rotunda's depiction of the highlights of Dublin's history pictorially. Head downstairs for a self-guided tour of fascinating artifacts and mini film clips easy to digest and imagine times past. The minimal entrance fee well serves this worthy site visit.

Interior of the City Hall is truly stunning - huge entrance hall under the beautiful dome. Entrance to the Rotunda is free, but there's also a little museum downstairs with an exhibition about history of the City Hall. I've paid 2 euros for entrance and I regret it - it was boring, mostly text with some short movies displayed on... More
