Clontarf Promenade

I cycle the Clontarf Promenade a few times a week during summer and these shelters have always been interesting to me. Turns out they were most likely built by Herbert G.Simms who seems to have built many of my favourite buildings in Dublin

I only had a short time to photograph these, but I will return to photograph the rest of the shelters soon.

More Info on Herbert G Simms and the incredible work he carried out in Dublin:
