5 unusual buildings to look out for in Dublin

1) The Thin Building

This mysterious brown brick building on Dame Street a couple of doors up from the Central Bank is almost as tall as the buildings on either side of it, but only wide enough to allow a front door and a plaque with a ship motive over the doorframe. Made of nothing but pure brick all the way to the roof, it is entirely windowless.
