What is the worst building in Ireland?

We want you to tell us!

IS IT THE Department of Health? Is it the Northside Shopping Centre? Is it the new Barack Obama Plaza in Moneygall?

We’re looking for the worst building in Ireland, and we want you to tell us what you think. We will then collect the results into a definitive list of shame.

(The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland is currently asking the public to vote for their favourite Irish building. But here at, we wanted to let you vent your REAL feelings.)

So which Irish building do you hate the most? Here are a few suggestions to get you started. Add your personal most-hated in the comments below!

The Department of Health on Poolbeg Street in Dublin?

The Merchants Quay Shopping Centre in Cork (right of picture)?

The Brown Thomas building in Limerick?

Or just a particularly ugly bungalow?

(“The book that has changed the face of rural Ireland”, indeed.)

Tell us which single Irish building you think is the worst. We’ll name and shame the winners.

PS. Please don’t say Leinster House because of the politicians. We see you.
