Location / Nearby George's Dock

Description

Originally built in the 1820s as a working maritime dock, it was named for George IV of the United Kingdom. The dock was adjacent to a number of warehouses built in the area, including Stack A (now known as The chq Building), which for most of the 19th century was the largest building in Dublin. The dock is fine example of the industrial history of the area and reminder of the Docklands maritime past. The dock is one of many great landmarks located in the Docklands area, along with the Famine Memorial statue, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship. Today George's Dock was been re-developed as part of the regeneration of the area and is used as an events space, hosting Dublin's Oktoberfest celebrations and Christmas markets. The George's Dock platform can accommodate a wide range of events, and at 1500m2 is one of the few outdoor sites in the city centre of its scale.
