The Royal Hibernian Military School (1769-1924), Phoenix Park, Dublin, was originally the Hibernian Asylum created by the Hibernian Society, a philanthropic organization founded in Dublin in 1769 following the Seven Years War. The school acted as a feeder to the British Army. The Society petitioned the King for a charter, which was granted. The Society's aim was to help the orphaned children of soldiers who fell during the war, its services later being extended to the destitute families of soldiers leaving Ireland for overseas service.

Today, the grounds are now home to St. Mary's Hospital.

Royal Hibernian School Cemetery is located behind the chapel. The cemetery is now considered a part of the larger Grangegorman Military Cemetery.
