Dublin Castle will be open for the public to witness the Marriage Referendum result today.

The castle will open to the public from 9.45am this morning.

The courtyard will be open for people to view the result on the big screen.

Admittance is on a first come, first serve basis and only the first 2,000 people will be allowed in.

The highly anticipated result will come as polling stations across the country recorded an 'unusually high' turnout for the referendum.

Some areas reported numbers comparable with voting levels rarely seen outside of general elections.

In Dublin, where polling had been particularly strong, many polling stations reported close to a 60 pc turn out before stations closed at 10pm.

This figure is up almost 40 pc on levels recorded during the Seanad referendum in 2013.
