Abandoned Poolbeg Pigeon House Power Station, Dublin (Ireland)

The Pigeon House, more formally known as the Poolbeg plant was built in the early 1900s. It’s situated by one of the most beautiful places to walk in Dublin – Sandymount Beach. 

Out of all of the buildings I have been to, the Pigeon House was by far the hardest to find and get in. It is tucked away in the heart of a huge active power plant site which is surrounded by acres of land and the beach itself.

The hardest part was slipping past the ESB security guards unseen, and then walking along the edge of an outer fence and climbing onto the platform of the plant. It’s hard to explain, but it was really tricky and there was a few moments where I was very afraid I’d fall into the sea!
