See this location as the centrepiece of orientation for visitors wanting to explore the route. This is a place of encounter where they are welcomed, advised and invited to experience a truly exceptional proposition. They will discover a series of transformed indoor and outdoor spaces – a state of the art welcome facility housed in the redesigned ground floor space of the existing building and outdoors, a fluid, flexible and unique event space. We see the development of this space as an opportunity to achieve a number of things – to bring the citizen and visitor together; to align the contemporary with the ancient; to bring the City’s tradition in the visual arts and culture together with its flair in digital technology and communication to creatively map the visitor journey in space and time and perhaps introduce some playfulness.

The new space is a dramatic urban intervention aimed at enhancing an appreciation of the City Walls and also the south entrance to Dublin Castle.
We need to implement aspects of the Framework Plan in particular
