Project Overview


Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies


Dunsink, Castleknock, Dublin

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) conducts advanced research exploring big questions of the 21st century and beyond.

Its research gains insights into Celtic society and its legacy, progresses our understanding of our island, our planet and the universe, and deciphers the underpinning mathematical principles of nature. DIAS Dunsink Observatory is a designated European site of historical significance for physics.

The conservation work on the South Dome and telescope, supported by funding from the Heritage Council, undertook works to the historical fabric and telescope.
