About Custom House

  • Custom House

No view of Dublin’s skyline is complete without a tableau of the Custom House, one of Dublin’s finest Georgian buildings. Designed by James Gandon and completed in 1791, it is beautifully proportioned, with a long classical façade of graceful pavilions, arcades, columns; a central dome topped by a 16 foot- statue of Commerce; and 14 keystones over the doors and windows, known as the Riverine Heads because they respect the Atlantic Ocean and the 13 principal rivers of Ireland. Although burned to a shell in 1921, this building has been masterfully restored and its bright Portland stone recently cleaned.

The best time to vacation in Dublin in order to make the most of your visit has been decided

While we’d argue that all year round is the best time to visit Ireland, depending on what you’re looking for from your vacation, there could be better times than others to travel.

According to Frommer’s, Spring and Fall (Autumn) are the best times to visit Ireland but each of the seasons has its own charm, whether you’re looking to get the best of the weather or whether you want to make the most of a great round of golf.
