About Collins Barracks

Collins Barracks (named after Michael Collins, Chairman of the Provisional Irish Government of the Irish Free State and Commander of the National Army, who was killed during the War Of Independence in 1922) has housed the National Museum of Ireland Decorative Arts & History exhibits since 1997. Built by Limerick military engineer Thomas de Burgh in neo-classical style and completed in 1704, the Barracks are one of Dublin’s oldest buildings.
