The Grand Lodge was established in 1725. The Hall, on Molesworth Street in Dublin City, built in 1869, is beautifully decorated in a Victorian style. The Grand Lodge Room is designed with arched blue ceilings trimmed with white and gold and contains a large pipe organ. Tours bring you around the Hall where you will see the Knights Templar Room and other ceremonial rooms of different architectural styles, including an Egyptian room and a mock Gothic room. The Lodge also contains administrative offices, a library, a museum and a café.
The Museum has many fascinating and interesting items on display, including masonic regalia, jewellery and tools as well as other artefacts, rich in the curious symbolism of the Freemasons and is open to the public all year round, free of charge.
Public guided tours of the Freemasons’ Hall are available during the months of June, July and August. No booking is required. Outside of these times it is possible to arrange private tours by phone for groups of 12 or more. Tours may be cancelled when Lodge events are running, sometimes on short notice. Phone first to avoid disappointment.
