  • Mansion House (1710) is the residence of the Lord Mayor of Dublin. It is a beautiful two-story, well-preserved building that was built for the aristocrat Joshua Dawson and then acquired by the Dublin Corporation to be used as the mayor's official residence. Official acts and receptions are held in this mansion today.

  • The Round Room - a spectacular spacious event location on the left hand side of the mansion house. In relation to the number of guests served good and well prepared food. Friendly service. Perfect for Christmas parties. 2017 holiday seasons show theme is titled „the golden era“. Nicely decorated and theme matching lighting.
  • Service: fast, but unfriendly. Location: just for dinning terrible - the acoustic of a huge big hall makes it impossible to understand each other. Price: there is a service charge of 10% - the waitress doesn't need to be friendly. Food: posh price, Taste: - the only good thing - all dishes were well prepared. Worst: seating time of two hours.
