State Concert Hall
Ireland, Dublin (city)

The Irish National Concert Hall is located in the center of Dublin on Earlsfort Terrace, next to St. Stephens Green Park. Initially, the building was built for an international exhibition in 1865, later several reconstructions were carried out here related to changes in the purpose of the premises. In addition to the exhibition pavilion, the building at different times was used as a summer garden, and later as the educational building of the Royal University of Dublin. The last reconstruction was completed in 1981, when President Patrick Hillery inaugurated the National Concert Hall. Since state subsidies allocated for maintenance and development are small, a decision was made to expand activities. Today, here, not only concerts of various musical directions are constantly held, from classical opera to jazz, but also regular educational programs for adults and children are implemented, master classes by famous masters of the stage are held, and a constant exhibition of contemporary Irish painting is held in the lobby. Halls are rented for private cultural and corporate events, exhibitions and festivals. The National Concert Hall is the home venue of the National Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra of Ireland.
The magnificent building in classical style combines four concert halls of various capacities. The largest - Auditorium, designed for one and a half thousand people, was redone from the lecture audience. Ten years after the grand opening of the concert hall in 1991, after the reconstruction of the stage, a magnificent concert organ was established in the center, recognized as one of the largest in Ireland. This is where large concerts and opera performances take place. The John Field Hall, which seats up to two hundred and fifty people, is used for chamber concerts, as well as an exhibition venue. Carolan Hall, with a capacity of up to one hundred people, is the venue for receptions and corporate events. Even if you do not plan to attend musical or theatrical performances that are constantly held in the National Concert Hall, you should still go into the lobby, enjoy beautiful paintings or visit a cozy cafe located on the ground floor of the building.
