The bank is making the space available to the Government for 10 years and refurbishment work is expected to begin once planning permission is granted.

The 7,000 sq ft space will occupy a number of rooms within the old Irish parliament, and will be accessible via the James Gandon-designed entrance on Westmoreland Street, which is currently out of use.

The project is part of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht's 'Decade of Centenaries' programme, which launched in 2012.
