Royal Dublin Society

Royal Dublin Society

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.

The Foundation programme aims to act as a catalyst to ensure that coming generations can fulfil their potential and benefits from the input of dedicated Committees of RDS Members.

Still a Society of Members who are integral to the continued success and development of the Foundation programme, the RDS is now also home to a prestigious Members' Club.
