Our Dockland Campus

Central Bank of Ireland Docklands building

The Central Bank’s Dockland Campus consists of our eighth-floor North Wall Quay building and our Mayor Street building, which are joined by a pedestrian bridge at second floor level. More than 1,700 people work in a hybrid manner between both buildings. 

Elsewhere in Dublin, the Central Bank’s Currency Centre is located in Sandyford.

The Central Bank was based in the Dame Street Tower from 1979 until 2017. We also had offices in the nearby Commercial Buildings, on College Green and in Iveagh Court, near Harcourt Street.

When the Central Bank needed more accommodation, it examined various options including investment in our existing city centre properties. It was finally decided the most cost effective option was to locate staff to the Dockland district. 

Key principles that informed the architecture and design of our Dockland Campus included maximising opportunities for

  • collaboration and sharing by staff
  • addressing environmental challenges
  • achieving very high energy and sustainability goals
  • reflecting the distinct and civic nature of the organisation.
