What does a guided tour involve?
The tour focuses on the history of the building and the traditions of Ireland’s rich parliamentary heritage. An usher accompanies visitors through the building and, where possible, includes a visit to the public galleries of the Dáil and Seanad debating chambers. The tour duration is 30 minutes approximately.
People wishing to take a tour of Leinster House can do so by contacting their local TD or Senator with details of the preferred date and time, the number in the party and the name and contact details of the lead person in the group. The TD or Senator will make the arrangements directly with the Event Desk.
