LOOKING TO THE PAST
EPIC is located in The CHQ Building in one of Dublin’s most historic locations by the banks of the River Liffey on Custom House Quay. CHQ, formerly known as Stack A, or the Tobacco Store, was built between 1817 and 1820 to store valuable cargoes of tobacco, tea and spirits. Designed by the Scottish engineer John Rennie with his son of the same name working as his principal assistant, this industrial masterpiece had the largest pre-20th century clear floor space in Dublin city. The building was made famous when it hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856, celebrating the return of 3,000 Irish soldiers.
