Learn about the National Concert Hall, our history, mission and plans for the future.
The National Concert Hall is a national cultural institution and the designated home of music in Ireland. Hosting over 1,000 events each year, we offer world class music, inspiring arts experiences and entertainment for all ages. Over four decades, the National Concert Hall has become more than a venue. It has evolved into an institution of which the nation is rightly proud, an icon of our musical legacy and its contemporary artistic vitality and creativity.
Sitting proudly on Earlsfort Terrace in Dublin’s city centre, our mission is to foster and celebrate the appreciation, knowledge, enjoyment and pure love of music as an integral part of Irish life. Visitors are inspired by the world class performances on our stages, and can equally experience and enjoy our iconic building through tours, early breakfast, afternoon tea or simply, quiet inspiration from walking through the picturesque Iveagh Gardens.
Our story is a rich and important one. From 1865 through to the present day, much has happened within these walls. Find out more here.
