Viking Centre

Coli O’Donoghue was given a brief by Dublin Tourism and Temple Bar Properties to redevelop an assembly of buildings dating from the 1780’s to early 1900’s for a tourism and cultural flag ship project in the centre of Temple Bar.

The project was developed to reflect the history of Viking Dublin to display artefacts and bring history alive using interactive material specifically to tell the story of the Vikings and the Wood Quay archaeology site. The project was extremely challenging because of the existence of historic fabric and a very complex set of existing buildings.
