The Mansion HouseThe Mansion House is the official residence of Dublin’s first citizen, the Lord Mayor, and one of Dublin cities finest and most loved buildings.

The Mansion House has been at the heart of city government since 1715. Construction started in 1705 and it was intended as a townhouse for Joshua Dawson, the developer of Dawson Street and Nassau Street. Joshua Dawson seldom lived in the house. Ten years later and still partly unfinished, it was sold to Dublin Corporation for £3,500 (€4,444), in addition to an annual rent of 40 shillings and an agreement to provide a loaf of double refined sugar, weighing six pounds at Christmas.

The Mansion House is remarkable for many reasons:

  • It is the only mayoral residence in Ireland which is still used for its original purpose
  • It is the oldest Mayoral residence in Ireland and in Britain (Dublin preceded London by 15 years in providing an official house for its mayor)
  • It is the oldest free-standing house in Dublin
  • The first Dáil met in the Mansion House Round Room in 1919 and cabinet meetings of that Dáil were held in the Dining Room.

The Mansion House's most famous features include the "Round Room", where the First Dáil assembled on 21 January 1919 to proclaim the Irish Declaration of Independence. On 21 January 1969 a special fiftieth anniversary joint session of Dáil Éireann and Seanad Éireann assembled there and was addressed by the then President of Ireland, Éamon de Valera.
