1760 – Dining Hall, Trinity College Dublin

Architect: Hugh Darley


In the 1740s Richard Cassels designed and built a Dining Hall on this site replacing an earlier structure. However on two separate occasions, the vaults collapsed and it was eventually replaced by Hugh Darley’s building that we see today.

It was severely damaged by a fire in 1984 and has since been restored by Dublin architects de Blacam and Meagher. A full reproduction of Adolf Loos American Bar in Vienna’s Kartner Strasse was installed in the former Senior Common Room above the Dining Hall.
