Re: Re: Dublin’s Ugliest Building
My vote for ugliest building(s) would have to be Nassau Street: the Kilkenny Centre, Blarney Woolen Mills, the two buildings at the corner with Dawson Street (beside what used to be Judge Roy Bean’s but is now yet another Porterhouse). It is a terrible collection of buildings, especially so close to Trinity and Grafton Street…Imagine the impression it creates for all those tourists getting off the buses to go and see the Book of Kells.
Also, I know it’s a little off-topic, but since I mentioned the Porterhouse here, what do people think of this kind of ‘chain-pub’ emerging in Dublin? There are four that I can think of right now: two in the city centre (Temple Bar and Nassau Street), one in Glasnevin and one in Bray. They already have this kind of thing in the UK with JD Wetherspoons and the like. For my money, I don’t think its a particularly welcome development. (And I don’t really like the beer either!)
