1917 – The Oval, Abbey Street, Dublin

Architect: L.A. McDonnell



A well known Dublin bar, the Oval has been refurbished inside, but the exterior remains intact. An unusual façade at street level is topped by a two storey bay window. Above this is the “oval” from which the bar gets its name, a large lunette opening in the façade. Strange.
