  Dublin Customs House
by Goner

The Custom House is often considered architecturally the most important building in Dublin. This European neo-classical masterpiece that sits majestically on the river front was completed in 1791 by renowed architect James Gandon. This is actually the second Custom House built in Dublin, the previous one built in 1707 only lasted 70 years.

The visitor Center contains exhibitions on the history of the Custom House including the 1921 fire and its restoration as well as a museum featuring the architect Gandon.

It's open daily and admission is free.
