5 that are underappreciated / off the map:
Grand Canal Basin – ESAT by de Blacam & Meagher, glass ‘tower’ by Shay Cleary, and Millennium Tower and new apartments (nearing completion), both by O’Mahony Pike
Clarion Quay in Docklands by Gerry Cahill, McGarry Ni Eanaigh & Derek Tynan
Marrowbone Lane – community centre by Henchion Reuter and Foyer by Brady Mallalieu, within 200 yards of each other
Calatrava’s Liffey bridge at Usher’s Island
Balgaddy A housing scheme in Clondalkin by Howley Harrington

5 classics (outwith the Canals):
Sir Edwin Lutyens’s War Memorial, Islandbridge (1930s)
John Johansen’s American Embassy, Ballsbridge (1960s)
Sam Stephenson’s Institute for Advanced Studies, Burlington Road (1970s)
Arthur Gibney’s Irish Management Institute, Sandyford (1970s)
Ronnie Tallon’s RTE’s campus, Donnybrook (the same architect since 1960)

2 ‘secret treasures’ to complete a worthy dozen:
de Blacam & Meagher’s ‘handed’ recreation of Loos’s American Bar (Vienna) on the first floor of Trinity’s Dining Hall (you must be invited by a Fellow of the College) (1987)
O’Donnell + Tuomey’s press room / reception centre, tucked away in the north-west corner of Dail Eireann, Kildare Street (you normally must be invited by a TD (Irish MP) to get in) (2002)
