LAD LANE RUNS AT ABOUT A 30 DEGREE ANGLE TO THE GRAND CANAL
Lad Lane was a short cut from Wilton Terrace to Lower Baggot Street. At the end nearest Baggot Street there is an interesting building dating back to 1836 and it served as a Dublin Metropolitan Police barracks [unfortunately I was unable to photograph it this visit]
Lad Lane could be best described as a back lane at Wilton Place and it consists of “upper”and “lower” sections. The lower section runs behind Linkedin’s new HQ building at Pembroke Row/Lad Lane. Pembroke Row is off Lade Lane and is another connection to Lower Baggot Street.
As already mentioned the whole area is effectively a massive construction site. Construction at Two, Three & Four Wilton Park started last year and the work is targeted for completion in 2023.
Late in 2019 it was announced that LinkedIn was planning the creation of a major campus for its European headquarters in Dublin adding more than 3,000 to its Dublin workforce. The Wilton Park estate includes the former Fitzwilton House [demolished], now One Wilton Park, whose former tenants include the Australian embassy and William Fry solicitors, and Wilton Park House, formerly let to the IDA.
