St. Eugene's Temperange Hall

This building serves as a community and family resource centre and it's right down the street from where the coastal walk begins.  It is located between Main Street and the waterfront.  This is the info I found on the building:  St. Eugene’s Hall [Temperance Hall], a stucco Baroque, gable-ended building with elaborate detailing and decorative roof line built in 1887. 


this side faces Lough Foyle

  1. A very unusual building to find in Ireland in the Baroque style but very nicely painted. Great photos of the details!
    Happy Saturday!

  8. It's a wondrous building with lots of fine detail. Makes me wonder if you had a strong temperance movement in the late 1800s in that area? We had one here, and it was building in those years to culminate in Prohibition.

  9. Gee, none of my relations in Clare ever expressed interest in temperance.

    Striking colors, a bit of a Spanish feel.
