The story behind the image

When we were visiting Dublin in Ireland in 2003, we also were looking for some information on activities in and around the city. We were stunned to see the Dublin Tourism Center, the main Dublin tourist office of Fáilte Ireland in the St Andrew’s Church, a former parish church. What a beautiful and smart way to underline Ireland’s rich history!

But all beautiful and smart things come to an end, and so this outlet for tourist information closed its doors in 2014. In 2019, there were plans evaluated to redevelop the building to become a food hall.

Anyway, I liked the interior so much that I could not resist to take a shot to capture the stunning use as tourist information. I can understand that Fáilte Ireland was looking for something more modern, probably also offering more space to information seekers. But still I think it’s sad that this unique location has been closed.
