The Old Parliament, a behind the scenes exploration
The Old Parliament, now Bank of Ireland (BoI), College Green, was the first great Palladian building in Dublin. A massive, high prestige project is by youthful pioneer Edward Lovett Pearce, the man who introduced Palladianism to Ireland. Later, in the 1780 and 90s, stunning extensions followed by James Gandon and Robert Parke. As the old parliament closed in 1801, it was adapted to its present use by Francis Johnston.
Dublin Decoded's tour (led by Arran Henderson) features both “public” areas of the bank and also - by special permission of BoI - areas normally closed to the public, such as the La Touche room and Gandon’s stunning Rotunda (formerly his entrance to the old Irish House of Lords).
Please note, due to security protocols, the name of each attendee must be provided to BoI prior to the tour so advanced booking is advised.
