Meetings at This Location

Since its inception in 1731, the Royal Dublin Society has grown from a small gathering of visionaries into one of Ireland's most influential bodies. Each Foundation activity benefits from the input of a dedicated Committee of RDS Members, whose objectives are to promote excellence, encourage development and advance awareness in a particular field. Still a Society made up of members integral to the continued success and development of the Foundation areas, the RDS is now also home to a prestigious Members' Club.

Dublin Weather

Clothing Note:

The meetings are "resort casual" in dress (khakis, jeans, casual shirts, sweaters). Even if you are not participating in outdoor activities, we suggest you bring clothes appropriate for local weather temperatures. Clothes that can be layered, for use both indoors and outdoors, will work best.

March temperatures in Dublin typically range between 35-45 degrees Fahrenheit.
