Re: Re: Dublin skyline
visited castleforbes myself over the weekend … the design of the internal spaces was horiffic, never mind the exterior. The top of its midget 8 story ‘tower’ did however offer a good view of the docklands area, particularly the south quays …
it really is a wasted opportunity, dreadful stuff – the whole south quay is filled at this stage (i was quite surprised things were that advanced) nothing even remotely interesting. Its clear architectural quality is not even a consideration of the DDDA, whether its five stories or more, they just don’t give a shite – surely there was scope to do something even semi-interesting along the liffey.
Go down yourselves and have a look at ‘Castleforbes’, or even more depressing, the view from its top floor.
