DDP 31.03.08

The sun finally came out in Dublin this morning, so really, it had to feature on DDP! This is a part of town that not many of the guidebooks will point you towards – the IFSC, which is the Irish Financial Services Centre. Think La Defènse in Paris or the City in London – this really is as close to skyscrapers as you get in Dublin and it has more financial institutions per square kilometre than any other part of the city.

It’s also right in the heart of the old docks, and some relics of the past are still visible. Here at George’s Dock is an old winch from the days the ships used to come this far in to offload imports.

You’ll get to see more of the Docklands as time goes on. The area has seen massive redevelopment and it will only continue in the years to come. The new Point, the U2 tower are all in the process of being built.
