What better way to round off a day in Dublin than with a classical concert in this incredible auditorium
For the music lovers
With concerts ranging from the likes of the Irish Symphony Orchestra to modern folk music groups, as well as showings of the great operas and musicals, the National Concert Hall is an unmissable place for classical music lovers to visit. The building was constructed in 1865 for the Dublin International Exhibition, and for more than a century was used to house the offices of Dublin University. In the mid sixties, the National Concert Hall succeeded in extending its musical facilities, which it shared with the University, and at the beginning of the 20th century an extensive refurbishment took place, designed to improve equipment and capacity without compromising the original architectural style. If you’re a fan of this type of show, you should check out the Concert Hall’s bill, which includes weekly concerts from the Orchestra as well as surprise international guests.
