CHQ Dublin
Dublin City, Co. Dublin
The CHQ Dublin building is a retail and events hub on the banks of the the River Liffey and George’s Dock in Dublin City centre. CHQ stands for Custom House Quay.

The beautifully restored CHQ Dublin building is a bright and airy space with many cafés, restaurants and bars.

CHQ Dublin have a range of spaces to suit every gathering, from small intimate parties of 50 guests to large show stopping corporate events catering for up to 800 attendees. Attractions include EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, and Dogpatch Labs.

Positioned on Custom House Quay in Dublin City centre, the building was originally designed to store cargo. Tobacco and tea were kept in separate compartments above ground, wine and spirit casks were stored in the vaults below ground. The building was made famous when it hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856, celebrating the return of 3,000 Irish soldiers.

Why we like it
  • Lovely setting beside the River Liffey and very central.
  • Plenty of choices for food and drinks under one roof.
  • Visit the EPIC museum and Irish Family History Centre on site.
Tips from locals

Keep an eye out for The World Poverty Stone on Custom House Quay, it is situated between the Famine memorial and Sean O'Casey Bridge. It is a commemorative stone to mark International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
