City Assembly House

58 South William Street, Dublin 2

The City Assembly House on Dublin’s historic South William Street was recently restored by the Irish Georgian Society and reopened in summer 2018 as a gallery and performance space. At the time of its construction the City Assembly House constituted a tremendously advanced initiative as it stood as the first purpose built public art gallery in either Britain and Ireland and possibly in Europe. It was built by the Society of Artists in Ireland between 1766 and 1771 with the expressed aim of promoting the work of Irish artists and providing an academy for the arts.
