Ireland: a parliamentary democracy

About the Oireachtas

Ireland: a parliamentary democracy

Ireland is a parliamentary democracy. The National Parliament (Oireachtas) consists of the President and two Houses: Dáil Éireann (House of Representatives) and Seanad Éireann (the Senate) whose functions and powers derive from the Constitution of Ireland enacted by the people on 1 July 1937. The Houses of the Oireachtas are situated at Leinster House, Dublin.

Did you know?

Leinster House is said to have been the inspiration for the design of the White House, the residence of the President of the United States. The architect of the White House, James Hoban, was an Irishman and studied architecture in Dublin.
