The Sexy New County Hall

Grabs your attention doesn’t it? Exciting design isn’t it? Wonderful work of engineering eh? Well, ok, it’s only the Cork County Hall but it is the tallest storeyed building in the Republic of Ireland at 67m so that must count for something? No?

The County Hall has been renovated over the last few years and does look better than it used to. I saw someone walking around on it’s roof a week or so ago, bet you’d have a great view from up there. Anyone know how I’d do that?

    If you dress with a big beard and traditional Arab dress, and ask nicely at reception, they will help you out.

    From your picture, it looks like a neat piece of architecture. The sticky-out-bits (OK so I didn’t study civil engineering) at the corners are a nice touch. I like the strong lines and bold contrasts of the picture too.

    I think the Clarion hotel in Limerick became the tallest storeyed building in the Republic when it was built a couple of years ago. Great photo btw.

    That’s taller than anything we’ve got in our town. Good luck getting up there, I hope you do; I’ll bet there’s a lot to see from that perch.

    The building might look great but it’s shite. Trust me! I might be able to get you into the top storey (supposed to be a public restaurant but the councillors decided to keep it for private functions only!) to get some pics. The views are definitely stunning.
