If you would like your class to visit the Dublin Hebrew Congregation, kindly fill out a form at www.tinyurl.com/dhc-tours. Tours are led by members of the Jewish community, and we can tailor the talk specifically for your group, whether primary. secondary or beyond.
We offer tours Monday - Wednesday, beginning at 10am or 11am. They generally last about 1 hour. No Friday tours, please. Tours are complimentary for educational groups, although donations are always gladly accepted.
There is also an Irish Jewish Museum, located in the Portobello section of Dublin. Their purpose is to educate the general public about the history of the Irish Jewish community. The Museum especially welcomes school groups - contact them at www.jewishmuseum.ie. We recommend booking either the Museum or the Synagogue, but not both, as there will be a good deal of overlap.
If you wish to have a Jewish speaker for your class, school or group, please contact the Synagogue Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. For Tomi Reichental or other Holocaust speakers, please contact the Holocaust Education Trust of Ireland at hetireland.org. If you wish to have a Jewish representative at your event, please contact the Jewish Community Office at email@example.com. We do not offer speakers or representatives for events which coincide with the Jewish Sabbath or on Festivals.
Tourists / Tour Guides
For Jewish tourists interested in seeing the synagogue, we strongly encourage coming at times of service, in order to meet members of our community (truly our synagogue's most interesting feature!) If you must visit outside of hours of prayer, a guide fee may apply.
Please be mindful that do not offer tours on the Jewish Sabbath or Festivals (however, we do encourage you to come and enjoy the synagogue as a worshipper instead!)
The synagogue office offers a Guide to Jewish Travel in Ireland, which offers many notes and ideas for interesting Jewish attractions to add to your must-see list.
The Guide to Jewish Travel also has listings of tour guides, who can lead you on bespoke tours of Jewish Dublin & Ireland, as well as show you sights of general interest.
