taken 5 years ago, 3 km from Dollymount, Dublin, Ireland

Poolbeg Lighthouse and Power Station
Poolbeg Lighthouse and Power Station
Situated on the tip of the southern breakwater leading to Dublin Port.

The Poolbeg Power Station on the Ringsend peninsula, one of the largest power stations in Ireland, was constructed in the 1960s on the site of the former Pigeon House Power Station. Although the power station has been closed, the chimneys remain - at over 200 metres high and amongst the highest structures in Ireland, they are a well-known and much-loved landmark on the Dublin skyline.
