Reply To: Best Irish building ever…
Nah – the Custom House is taking the easy way out – I never really became attached to this building – its too perfect. Like a pretty girl fluttering her eyelashes aching to be liked.
Still stunning though.
Bank of Ireland is my favourite, with City Hall and Trinity’s West Front joint second. Trinity’s too well known as an institution with the Book of Kells etc – so the west front is just glossed over by everyone. I think it’s just perfect, so simple and elegant – a more continental style really.
And the central block of the other BOI as my modern.
Damn that bank – they’ve monopolies in everything!
