The chq building (formerly known as Stack A), located in the heart of Dublin's Docklands, overlooking the River Liffey, was built in 1820 as a wine and tobacco warehouse. The then Stack A was made famous when it hosted the Crimean War Banquet in 1856 celebrating the return of 3,000 Irish soldiers. The building has been magnificently restored and enhanced and is the final development in the IFSC to be completed.
The chq building is located in the heart of the IFSC and is just an eight minute walk from O'Connell Street. The building faces George's Dock, the site of the new Abbey Theatre.
