This site holds a patchwork of Dublin’s brewing and architectural history.

Originally home to the St.Thomas monastery, holding its own brewhouse, the site was producing beer back to the middle ages, long before their close neighbour at St James’s Gate. By the 1820s Watkins Brewery was the third largest brewer in Dublin, later merging with Jameson Pim & Co in 1904 due to intense competition.

Briefly occupied by rebels during the 1916 rising but sadly ceased trading in 1937, declaring voluntary liquidation. Today, No.10 of the Watkins Buildings remains intact, No. 8 & 9 were demolished in the 1980s, leaving the remains of No.9 exposed for the past 40 years - its fireplaces currently bare to the elements, home now only to some cooing pigeons. 

A Place that saw Dublin in the height of its diverse brewing industry, it now quietly awaits the future.
