Archer's Garage, Dublin City
This was an impressive and ambitious Art Deco inspired building which would provide for the selling and servicing of Ford cars. In 1999 the building was illegally demolished, despit the fact that it was Grade 1 listed. The Dublin City Council were determined to have the building restored and ordered the developer to rebuild it. The new building on the site is a reasonably faithful copy of the original and worth a visit.


A souvenir booklet of the opening of the garage is available at the Archers Garage Heritage Web Site click here
