The area of Grangegorman, to the north of Dublin's city centre, has been home to Ireland’s first Psychiatric Hospital since at least 1814. The entire 700-acre site is now to be redeveloped to house the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT).

In order to preserve the history of the hospital and the surrounding area, a society for the creation of Grangegorman Museum has been established. The aim of the Society is to collect and collate artefacts, memorabilia, records and the memories of individuals in a way that is accessible to a wider community.

Our main objective is to establish a permanent museum within the redevelopment of Grangegorman.

This website demonstrates some of the material we have collated to date. Visits to view this material at our temporary museum can be made by appointment.
