When you visit Dublin castle and Chester Beatty, City hall is on your way. It is free, take a look but there is not much to do. It was quiet. I used wifi to plan the next spot to visit.
They are closed Sundays.
The City Hall Exhibition Centre was a stop on our walking tour. The building's mosaics, marble and stained glass are worth the detour to take in. There is an extensive historic exhibit if you have the time.

This historic building has inside a well organized historical presentation of this city. With an assortment of dioramas, multi media and artifacts one can learn how Dublin came into being. This is well worth a first stop when visiting Dublin.
This actually is a nice part of Irish history and the tour is well worth it. I call it part 1 of a two part tour of Irish history, with the jail on the other side of Dublin being part 2 and a good bookend...More
