Dear Member/s & Friends
The committee of Dun Laoghaire Borough Historical Society has decided to cancel our monthly lectures until further notice. We hope to re-schedule them sometime in the future.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Kind regards


The Aims of the Society are to promote and sustain an interest in the Culture, Heritage and History of Ireland, with particular regard to the Dun Laoghaire Area.

FountainThe Dun Laoghaire Borough Historical Society was started by a number of people who came together out of a love of local environment, its history, and its environs. The first meeting was in the rooms of Dun Laoghaire Credit Union, at 21 Longford Terrace, Monkstown on the 21st April 1978.

The Dun Laoghaire Borough Historical Society is a Member of the Federation of Local History Societies and is supported by local business.
