If you wish to have a tour, Heritage Week is a good time to go. This building was involved in the 1916 rising and there is still bullet hole in one of the rooms. This tour takes about an hour and is given by the Head Porter. Great knowledge of the building and its history and has typical Dublin wit.... More

Beautiful campus! Overlooking the park and close to other sites. Definitely worth checking out if you're into history, or a prospective medical student

Free entry for this exhibition about the Easter Rising with plenty of individual stories. Set in a nice building. You could easily spend an hour in here.

Called in while on a 1916 day to the display in the college. Very informative and well displayed in a couple of the rooms that were in the middle of the action during the rising. Lovely rooms and attentive polite staff. Call in soon as I believe its not a permanent display and it's free !!!

This college is just opposite to St. Stephen's Green. The building looks grand. We could not enter as it was closed for visitors. All medical students who are interested in surgery will be studying here. Great. I saw one more Royal College of surgeons of Ireland building in Sandy Ford opposite Stillorgan Luas station. But the building is small and... More

I have wanted to visit the Royal College of Surgeons building for many years and just never got the chance. Thankfully it was open for 3 days offering free guided tours as part of the 2015 Heritage week. The tour was incredibly informative and took in so much of the building and its wonderful history. The front of house manager... More

I'm not sure if this college is open to the public. The main road facing St. Stephen's Green is closed, and one has to enter through the side road. I used the "I'm a former Fellow of this college" card to enter, and I was warmly welcomed and allowed to walk around the premises. Nothing great, but still a nice... More
