In Focus Tour

Open House Dublin: Clock Tower Building Guided Tour

It is more than 21 years since the Chester Beatty moved from Shrewsbury Road to Dublin Castle. OPW former Assistant Principal Architect, Angela Rolfe, worked on a number of projects in Dublin Castle between 1981 and2017, including the restoration and extension to the former Clock Tower Building for the Chester Beatty.

Angela will share background context for the project development and restoration process for this unique project. 
Join her for a behind-the-scenes tour of the non-public rooms and facilities in the restored former Clock Tower Building.
