The Tara Building is a creative hub on Dublin’s Tara Street. Formerly a long-term disused office block, the site has been reinvented over the last year, with a bold mural by Maser covering the facade and interior space comprising of a co-working floor, gallery and event space, screen printing studio, serviced offices and rooftop garden. Having been vacant for a considerable period before being brought back into use, it’s original architect is unknown and rumours are rife as to its former use. At the height of print paper the site is supposed to have been a store-house for thousands of copies of The Irish Times (the Tara’s buildings neighbour).

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers.

Designed by: Unknown
Building Date: 1960's
Location: 11-15 Tara Street, Dublin 2
