^^I quite like the Customs House, but like many/most historic buildings in Dublin it suffers becuase of a lack of appreciation and the compromising context of its surroundings. The loopline bridge, liberty hall and a couple of decrepit buildings in the general vicinity ruin a perfectly, elegant and classical Georgian building.
Being a history fan, my fav buildings would usually have an abundant/interesting history attached to them, rather than being just superficially impressive. So, Christchurch and Dublin Castle would standout, but both again are ruined by their 20th/21st century context!!!


Anyway, more Customs House pics...

Yep, agree wit Aviva. One of the best designed stadiums in Europe on the outside but a big let-down on the inside.
