WATER FEATURE AT WOLFE TONE QUAY
I have frequently complained that the majority of fountains and water features in Dublin are inactive or dry. However, much to my surprise, this installation on Wolf Tone Quay actually has water. I have noticed a few visitor reviews in which they mentioned that they did not feel safe at this specific location especially at night and to be honest I have to agree because I have had issues in the past. Of course, I should mention that this was once a very active “red light” area.
Wolfe Tone Quay is one of several quays along the Liffey, part of maritime developments within the city stretching back to the thirteenth century. Formerly known as Albert Quay, but known as Wolfe Tone Quay since the early twentieth century, this section dates from the early nineteenth century and is the most westerly of the northern quays. The quay wall is of well-built ashlar granite and presents a strong visual statement. The quays are of significance in the context of the economic and maritime development of Dublin city as one of Ireland’s principal ports. They are representative of early nineteenth-century engineering technology.
