Tours of Government Buildings

From: Department of the Taoiseach

Guided tours of Government Buildings normally take place every Saturday at 10.30am, 11.30am, and 1pm. Each tour is about 40 minutes in duration.

Tickets are free of charge and are available on the morning of the tours from the Clare Street entrance of the National Gallery (open at 9.30 am). Advance booking is not permitted. Please note that for security reasons the National Gallery is not in a position to offer cloakroom facilities to those visiting Government Buildings.

Tours are liable to cancellation at short notice due to government business. The number of tours provided each Saturday may also be subject to change at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances, so please check in advance to avoid disappointment.
