It was decided in 1938 that the inauguration of the first President of Ireland, Douglas Hyde would take place in the castle, and the complex has been host to this ceremony ever since. The castle is also used for hosting official State visits as well as more informal foreign affairs engagements, State banquets, including that for the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 2011, and Government policy launches. It also acts as the central base for Ireland's hosting of the European Presidency approximately every 10 years. Two dedicated conference facilities, The Hibernia Conference Centre and The Printworks, were installed for the European Presidencies of 1990 and 2013, and are made available for rental by the private sector too.
