Power and former glory

Inside the Pigeon House Power station

No mooring

Couple of shots from last weekends exploits. This time an early morning trip to one of Dublin’s iconic landmarks, the Pigeon House Power Station.

Poolbeg Power Station is situated adjacent to the now-decommissioned Pigeon House generating station, where electricity was first generated in 1903. The Pigeon House was previously a military barracks and the officers accommodation building still exists. It was used for power generation until it was decommissioned in 1976, and the Poolbeg plant is still known locally as the Pigeon House. It is an impressive structure built of red brick and steel and still retains lots of beautiful features both inside and out.
