Leinster House will feature in Culture Night 2020, but this time with a 3D virtual tour open to everybody.
Virtual visitors will be able to move through the major rooms of the home of Ireland’s parliamentary democracy and see:
- The art collection, including portraits of former Taoisigh
- The Dáil Chamber from the Ceann Comhairle’s chair
- The recently restored Seanad Chamber
- Rooms traditionally used to receive visiting dignitaries
Leinster House usually welcomes 90,000 visitors each year, including large numbers on Culture Night. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, tours and other non-essential visits to Leinster House are cancelled. For now, only those on official Oireachtas business may visit. This is to protect the welfare of all who work in Leinster House and to keep the Houses of the Oireachtas open for its core legislative business.
To take the virtual tour, visit www.oireachtas.ie on Culture Night, Friday, 18 September 2020.
