The Mansion House Events Centre

The Mansion House Built in 1710 for Joshua Dawson after whom Dawson Street was named, The Mansion House was bought by Dublin Corporation in 1715 and became the official residence of the Lord Mayor of Dublin.

Steeped in history, The Mansion House was the scene where the first meeting of the Dail convened in 1919 followed by the adoption of the declaration of Independence. It also hosted the signing of the truce that ended Anglo-Irish hostilities in 1921.

The Mansion House has two wedding venues in one; the large Round Room to the rear of the building and the smaller restaurant "Fire" at the front.

The Round Room:

The Round Room has become one of the premier venues for Dublin's most prestigous Gala Dinners, Charity Balls and Award Ceremonies. It has a well established reputation for excellent service, cuisine and creative event management that has brought some of the highest profile events in Dublin, to Dawson Street. Located on one of Dublin City's premier streets, it is adjacent to the Lord Mayor's residence and parallel to Dublin's busiest shopping thoroughfare, Grafton Street.

A semi circular balcony overlooks the Round Room and provides an elegant setting for pre-dinner drinks or a welcome reception for up to 250pax.


* 450pax: Seated lunch or dinner with basic stage & dancefloor
* 600pax: Stand up reception
* 300pax: Seated buffet for lunch or dinner
* 315pax: Cabaret Style

Fire Restaurant:

A very large room previously known as The Supper Room is now used as a restaurant called Fire and the room itself is interesting with unusual Celtic themed contemporary décor which is unexpected in this graceful old room, but it offers well executed smart food, in classy surroundings served with a twist of chic.

The cosmopolitan outdoor seating area at the front of Fire hints at the style that pervades throughout the impressive interior and the spacious dining room is slick, successfully blending a sophisticated modern feel within the historical setting of the building.

The room's centrepiece of three Celtic spires, a beautiful wall mosaic at the rear of the building, and the elemental lighting set an opulent atmosphere, without being too formal.

The seated capacity in Fire is 200.
