Museum of Orange Heritage
Schomberg House is the Headquarters of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland and includes a small museum area including fascinating material from throughout the Order's history.
Materials include the Williamite Archive which are items which belong to William The Third, Prince of Orange, dating back to 1690, as well as a wealth of material from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Items from around the world are on a rolling display and there is also a research library. Phoning Schomberg House is advisable in advance of any visit as plans for a much wider Interpretative Centre at the location will result in closure of the facility during 2013. Please check with staff at Schomberg House regarding what is available to view before you visit.
The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland relocated to Schomberg House in January 2001. The building comprises office accommodation, an Orange memorabilia shop, library and research facilities, a conference room and a Cultural Heritage Centre.
Schomberg House is open to the public during our normal office hours (9.30 - 5.00) and welcomes organised parties for tours and talks. You can also view the many interesting artefacts, some dating back to the 1690s and also access a unique documentary resource in our library. The building can be booked for meetings, seminars, lectures etc. (Tel. 028 9070 1122).
