WOOD QUAY DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL CIVIC OFFICES
Wood Quay is a riverside area of Dublin that was a site of Viking settlement. It is now the location of the offices of the Dublin City Council.
The site is bounded on the north side by Wood Quay on the River Liffey, on the west by Winetavern Street, on the south by John’s Lane and on the east by Fishamble Street. Two bridges cross the river at Wood Quay, one at the eastern and the other at the western end. The bridge at the eastern end is Grattan Bridge, formerly known as Essex Bridge, named after 18th century parliamentarian Henry Grattan. The bridge at the westerly end of Wood Quay is O’Donovan Rossa Bridge named after the 19th century Fenian.
