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.

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.

Great selection of restaurants/coffee shops if you are in the area weekdays. There are also a wine shop and a healthfood store. Some outlets are leased to pop-up shops and I there is an increasing number of units being let as exhibiting spaces

Beautiful place and space but it's empty most of the time... Perfect for temporary expositions and festivals though!

some nice food outlets and a nice place to go around christmas or ocotberfest during the markets, but almost no shopping stores in the centre, all empty spaces like they have't been rented.

It's a quiet place, many varieties of fast foods. There are many art events during weekends (Sundays closed)

Just a nice commercial building. I've been there as some tech companies are organizing conferences in their superb meeting space.

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.
