Home to Ireland’s best known venue, the RDS is Ireland’s Philanthropic Society. It was founded in 1731 to support Ireland to thrive economically and culturally. Funded by our commercial operations, the RDS continues this mission today through our philanthropic work programme that spans across science, the arts, agriculture, business and equestrianism.
