Royal Barracks

Royal Barracks (now Collins Barracks)
Collins Barracks now houses part of the collection of the National Museum but until recently was the oldest military barracks built for that purpose. During the 1916 Rising it was known as the Royal Barracks and housed the 10th Royal Dublin Fusiliers - thirty-seven officers and four hundred and thirty men - used to fight against the Citizen Army.
