Yep – one of the most extraordinary buildings in Dublin to happen upon at the moment. Well worth a look on curiosity grounds alone. The layers of peeling paint on the shopfront are extraordinary – rarely will you come across such an intact example of a generational fruitless exercise in maintenance. It’s like cardboard in parts it’s that thick. The Victorian arched window is a real delight, while the first floors’ shout alteration of an early structure.

Suffice to say this building is also not protected. The decision on the pub was a real shame – leading the charge for more of the same blandness from Cork Street. Ironically it’s also one of the fre buildings in this area – new or old – that’s actually in good condition.
