A location like no other building in Dublin, The chq Building overlooks the River Liffey and George’s Dock. The chq Building is a grade one listed building situated within the heart of the city’s bustling International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) in the Docklands. Formerly known as Stack A, it was built in 1820 as a wine and tobacco warehouse with vaults beneath to store wine. Formerly known as Stack A, the building was made famous when it hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856 celebrating the return of 3,000 Irish soldiers. The building has been magnificently restored and revamped.

Lovely building with some decent sellers. See some of my other reviews for retailers in the CHQ building. They do house the Dog Patch Labs which is a great startup incubator.

Nice shopping centre with a lot of nice place where you can eat or drink. It's growing a lot. Ely brasserie is good for lunch, dinner or just a beer with friends or colleagues

I actually love CHQ as a boutique shopping centre experience but I hate it's opening times and the fact that they often have many entrances closed between 8am and 9am when I use it as a shortcut and a place to grab a takeaway coffee. It has a really good value organic supermarket.

What a perfect timing for visiting. I used to be there quite often, but since I moved out of Dublin I really need good reason to go there. One popped up recently, and gosh, I really enjoyed it. I visited wine shop to get descent Croatian wine, there was hair display (and I mean rabbits), and almost no people, so my little boy could run all the time.

A really cool building. Some shared office spaces (Dog Patch Labs) and a lot of food offerings both inside and out. Is the new home of the "Epic" tourist attraction which is opening this weekend and I am looking forward to visiting. A €12 million investment in it, the same compnay that developed the Titanic experience in Belfast all adds up to hopefully a great place to spend the afternoon.

The chq Building hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856.

Three thousand six hundred and thirty eight bearded and battle-hardened Crimean War veterans marched into the tobacco warehouse known as Stack A, or The chq Building, on Dublin’s Custom House Quay. 

Lord Mayor Farrell was of the opinion that Ireland’s Crimean veterans should be celebrated as heroes. On 19th August 1856, he began a subscription campaign for a massive banquet for 4000 soldiers.The campaign proved enormously popular. Within weeks, there was a budget of £3,588 to green light the banquet.

Did you know?

Built in 1820, The chq Building's original purpose was to store considerable, and valuable, cargos of tobacco, tea and spirits. Tobacco and tea were kept in separate compartments above ground and Wine and spirit casks were stored in extensive vaults below.
