Part of Dublin’s 18th century sea wall to go on display

September 26, 2023

Part of Dublin’s original sea wall, which is almost 300-years-old, and a number of other artefacts, including dockworkers’ pipes displaying political and trade union branding, will go on display in a newly-restored Victorian electricity substation at Dublin Port.

Dublin Port is 300 hectares in size, but this will be the first building on the estate which is open to the public to visit.

The brickwork from the 1720s was uncovered during the restoration of the substation which lies at the entrance to the port on Alexandra Road in Dublin.

A glass-bottom floor allows people to walk over the 18th century sea wall, from which the nearby East Wall got its name.
