Dublin's Custom House Reflected in the River Liffey

Dublin's Custom House with moody reflections Dublin's Custom House with moody reflections

Dublin's iconic Custom House seen here reflected in the city's calm River Liffey on a moody weather day.

The Custom House was built by Irish architect James Gandon and opened in 1791 and its function was to collect taxes or customs on goods being imported and exported through Dublin Port - and there were a lot of taxes applied.

Within a few decades the port area moved downstream and the Custom House was used for other purposes, today the port is built on reclaimed land in Dublin Bay.
