Provincial Grand Lodge of Munster

Welcome to our website.

Our province the oldest in the Irish Constitution is centered on our Provincial Grand Lodge premises at Freemasons’ Hall, 25-27 Tuckey Street, ideally situated in the centre of the city of Cork, just off Grand Parade.

Freemasons’ Hall is home to the Provincial Grand Lodge of Munster, a quarterly meeting governing the Masonic province, which convenes on the first Wednesday in the months of October, January, March and May.

It is also home to the District Grand Royal Arch Chapter, which governs the Royal Arch Chapters.


The eight Lodges and five Royal Arch Chapters of the city of Cork meet here, besides also a Council of Knight Masons, Preceptory of High Knights Templars, and Chapter of Prince Masons.

The Supper Room on the ground floor is used for post-meeting suppers as well as the annual dinners to mark the installation of officers.

It also acts as museum and contains a wealth of history around its walls

A coffee morning is held each Friday from 10.15am to 11.45am. All are welcome to visit and it is often an excellent introduction for prospective members. All proceeds from these mornings are donated to charity.
