Dublin Architecture – Selection

e-architect select key examples of current Dublin Architecture. Our aim is to include projects in the capital of the Republic of Ireland that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Dublin buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the city. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 2 pages of Dublin Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.
