The Custom House

Like I said, by the end of our day in Dublin the weather had turned out quite nicely. This is the dome of The Custom House (Irish: Teach an Chustaim) in Dublin. Located on the north bank of the River Liffey, The Custom House was built in the late 18th century, replacing an older one, and opened in November 1791. After the port of Dublin had moved further downriver, the building lost its purpose and became the headquarters of the Local Government Board for Ireland. In 1921, during the Irish War of Independence, the Irish Republican Army burnt down the Custom House, but it was subsequently restored after the war by the Irish Free State government. Nowadays, it houses the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government. A wider view of the building is found in the WS.
