Appraisal

One of the last classical stone buildings built on a grand scale in Ireland, the City Hall is one of the city's few monumental classical buildings. Its site on the river is very important to this part of the city, the river gateway to the east. The fact that the building remains entirely in its original use adds to its significance.Designed by Jones & Kelly.
