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.
