Overview

This beautifully restored 17th century building is the oldest military barracks in Europe. As if that isn't enough, Collins Barracks also acts as the second site of the National Museum in Dublin, housing the institution's collections of decorative art. Of particular note are the collections of Irish silverware and furniture, while an exhibition entitled "The Way We Wore" provides a fascinating insight into fashion through the ages. Collins Barracks is also often home to interesting touring exhibitions, and is only a short stroll from the newly revitalized Smithfield area. Entry is free.
