No 5 at the National Gallery

Supplier Details

No 5 at the National Gallery of Ireland is centrally located in the heart of Georgian Dublin’s cultural quarter, on Merrion Square. Restored to its former glory in 2008, the house adjacent to the Gallery is furnished with beautiful and historic furniture and paintings from the collection.

The Wintergarden venue at the National Gallery of Ireland is a breathtaking and quite unique space that can accommodate up to 160 people for a gala dinner. This venue space was once the garden of the now beautifully restored Georgian house at No 5 South Leinster Street, where civil ceremonies are now hosted. The space is overlooked on one side by the imposing bay windows of the house, and on the other by the original mews. The effect of al fresco dining is completed by a high glass roof over the space. Catering at our functions is provided by the gallery’s contracted caterer With Taste. 

This venue would be perfect for a dinner or reception following your civil ceremony. It is available for functions from 6 to 11pm each day, except Thursdays.

The ultimate venue.

No 5 South Leinster Street provides the ultimate venue for those seeking a private, intimate and elegant civil ceremony. From the moment you step on the red carpet and walk through the magnificent doorway, you realise you are somewhere special. This is a venue steeped in tradition, with a cosmopolitan feel, set in the midst of the National Collection.

A handsome stairway leads to a suite of rooms - the Lavery, the Maclise and the Purser. The Lavery can host a ceremony for 40 people, the Purser can accommodate up to 20, and the ceremony can be followed by a reception or dinner in the adjoining rooms.
