  • The Supreme Court was established by James Gandon at the end of the 18th century. The classicist domed building with its almost 140 m long façade is the equivalent of Custom House further west. The occupation of the building by IRA troops at night on the 14.04.1922 ushered in the Irish civil war. Even today, the supreme court still meets here, so that the visit to the building is forbidden.

  • Four Courts, point to the Supreme Court. It is called "forcoats" because of the establishment of four Courts of the equitable Court, the Court of Thrones, the financial court, and the Court of civil proceedings.
