This attractive neo-classical building that stands on the banks of the Liffey in the west end of Dublin city centre is the historic Four Courts building. It was originally built between 1786 and 1802. I say originally as the building was pretty much destroyed in 1922 during the Irish Civil War (it had previously survived the 1916 Easter uprising when the rebels had occupied it). It was rebuilt to the original design, although many features, particularly in the interior, were lost.
