“Custom House”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

The Custom House in Dublin is regarded as one of the jewels in the city's architectural crown. A masterpiece of European neo-classicism it took 10 years to build and was completed in 1791. It cost the then not inconsiderable sum of £200,000. It was the greatest achievement of James Gandon who had been brought over from England to carry out the work. http://www.environ.ie/en/AboutUs/HistoryofDepartment/TheCustomHouse/. Train or DART to Connolly Station or Tara St. No Parking.

“Dominating the River Liffey”
Reviewed 1 October 2011

Custom House was a lovely, huge building overlooking the River Liffey. With a great dome at the top, the architecture was impressive and worth a look. Particularly from across the river, the building is mighty and impressive. On the northern side are some lawns which are also worth a look.
