Virtual tour of Leinster House

While we remain unable to welcome visitors except those on official business, we invite you to take a 3D virtual tour of Leinster House.

Take a walk through the home of Ireland's parliamentary democracy. See the art collection, the recently restored Seanad Chamber and the Dáil Chamber from the Ceann Comhairle's chair. You will also see some of the rooms traditionally used to receive distinguished visitors.

We created the virtual tour as part of Culture Night 2020.

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.

In 1914, the RDS established the Radium Institute in Leinster House, and it was here that John Joly developed the first effective radiation treatment for cancer known as the “Dublin method”.
