Hall 1 (Main Hall)
A breath-taking venue with soaring wood and glass ceilings, exposed stonework and original marble floors. Hall 1 has the flexibility to suit any event. This inspiring space offers unrivalled flexibility.
Hall 1 (Main Hall) is located at the entrance of the RDS with its main doors facing the Merrion Road. This venue works well as a central hub for large events. While being adjacent to Hall 2 (Shelbourne Hall), Hall 3 (Serpentine Hall) and Hall 4 (Industries Hall) it is often used in conjunction with either one or all of these. Hall 1 with its spectacular floor-to-ceiling stone walls features a balcony overlooking the ground floor and is one of the most distinguished venues in Ireland. Often used as an anchor venue for large events, Hall 1 (Main Hall) is the most popular of the RDS halls. There are also many breakout rooms accessible from the balcony, including the Merrion Room and the President's Room.
