The historic Rotunda Chapel is the jewel in the crown of the world’s oldest maternity hospital. Situated to the north of O’Connell Street, it maintains a special place in the day-to-day life of patients and staff of the hospital.
This Culture Night, we offer our followers a rare opportunity to learn about the beautiful Chapel and the history of one of Dublin’s most recognisable landmarks.
We’ve prepared some online material to give you a taste of this unique space. The recorded videos highlight the architecture, design and history of the Chapel and are presented by Professor Michael Geary, Clinic Director of the Rotunda Hospital and former Master and Anne O’Byrne Head of Library Services at the Rotunda Hospital.
