Dublin Mosque
Dublin Mosque is a mosque on the South Circular Road, Dublin, Ireland. It is currently the headquarters of the Islamic Foundation of Ireland.

Beginning of the Community
In the early 1970s, at a time when there was no mosque in Dublin, Muslim students began to contact their relatives, Islamic organizations in the UK and some Muslim countries with the purpose of raising funds to establish a mosque in Dublin. In 1974 a four-storey house was bought, and in 1976 the first mosque and Islamic centre was opened. A few years after its establishment, this mosque became too small to accommodate the increasing numbers of worshippers.

The Mosque
The Donore Presbyterian Church was constructed in the 1860s in the style of a 13th-century English church. In 1983 the building on the South Circular Road was bought by the Islamic Foundation of Ireland and converted into a mosque.
