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.

This is such a nice building in terms of location and exterior but inside its almost entirely empty. It's a true shame such a lovely building had nothing inside except a Starbucks along with a few other food places. Recently a new exhibition Epic Ireland found a permanent home there so if your going for the exhibition its a great location but unless you're going for the exhibition or desperately need free Wi-Fi just skip this.

Nice place with lots of shops. Too bad some restaurants are more like a fast food places than nice restaurants. Also more tables and sitting areas would be great. Epic Ireland is a must see event.

Beautiful building with good eateries. Shop selection somewhat limited but new Irish museum breathing more life into the place

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.

Beautiful historical building. Restored at huge cost and seemingly left to waste by ineptitude of Dublin docklands authority. Thankfully rescued by a man of vision. Good food court. Newly opened visitor experience. Not been to it yet tho so you judge 😃

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

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.
