Inside the Customs Building, you can see a very rich Irish architectural style. The Customs Building is also a very unique area. You can observe a lot of fun things here. It is also very interesting for foreign companies to visit.

Additional Information

Introduction

This broad, 18th century neoclassical building overlooks the quays along the northbank of River Liffey. Though it was not a famous building when it was built in the 1780s, it was thought to be excessively large and costly and in the wrong location, it is now considered a jewel of a landmark construct. Today, most of it is not available to the public, but a piece of it displays the history of the building and its interesting, stubborn architect, James Gandon.
