What travelers say:

Located in Phoenix Park. Because the roadside in front of the official residence can not stop, so the bus stopped farther away, looking for a long time, and passed without finding. Asked three locals in the park finally found it. In fact, the first place to ask the road is not far away, imagine the time to go forward led to the past. On the way back, the first person to ask the road, the heart again gave us directions to find. Because the building is a distance from the road, will not pay attention to will ignore. The presidential palace looks nice, but it's not a good view from a distance. It's raining, the time to get on the bus is here, and a few photos of the panic and rush to the bus location.

Additional Information

Introduction

Aras an Uachtarain means "House of the President." While today it functions as the official residence of the President of Ireland, the Aras an Uachtarain dates to the 1780's - before the office of President even happened. At the time it was used as the summer residence of the British Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. It turned into the official residence almost by accident: When the office of President was created in 1937, Douglas Hyde, the first president, lived there temporarily while plans were made to construct a new presidential palace on the grounds. When WWII broke out, the plans were eliminated, and over time the residence became the official dwelling. Aras an Uachtarain is open for tours at no cost every Saturday.
