PHOTOS: Somewhere you don't often get to see: The Freemasons' Hall in Dublin

It’s right in the heart of Dublin’s city centre but few people have been inside the Freemasons’ Grand Lodge of Ireland. Here’s what it’s like inside.

IT’S RIGHT IN the heart of Dublin’s city centre but relatively few people have actually been inside the Freemasons’ Hall on Molesworth Street, located less than 50 metres from Leinster House.

The Grand Lodge of Ireland’s Freemasons (which “brings together men of goodwill and integrity, tolerant of the beliefs of others, charitable in disposition and striving to achieve high moral standards in every aspect of their daily lives”) was built in 1865 and is the governing body of hundreds of Lodges throughout Ireland.

The building opened its doors to the public this week as part of Heritage Week. Here’s what it’s like inside.
