  Four Courts
by Mikebb

The Four Courts building can be seen from the Hop On Hop off Tour Bus as it drives along the Liffey Riverside. You will have to get off the bus at the Old Jameson Distillery stop and walk a few hundred metres to the Four Courts. With limited time we remained on the bus.

Completed in 1796 it was seriously damaged during the Civil War of 1916 when occupied by the rebels and bombarded by government troops. By 1932 the building had been restored using the original design. The building has a beautiful copper covered lantern dome and a 6 column Corinthian portico.
