About The Four Courts

  • The Four Courts

The home of the Irish law courts since 1796, this fine 18th century building overlooks the north bank of the River Liffey on the west side of Dublin. With a sprawling 440-foot façade, it was designed by James Gandon and is distinguished by its graceful Corinthian columns, massive dome (64 feet in diameter), and exterior statues of Justice, Mercy, Wisdom, and Moses. The building was severely burned during the Civil War of 1922, but has been artfully restored. The public is admitted only when court is in session, so it is best to phone in advance.
