Derelict Ballyfermot Warehouse, Dublin (Ireland)

I get a lot of email requests from photographers, film directors, location scouters and other urban explorers for the location details of certain places I have photographed. The most type of site people ask for details about, is a site with space to shoot photos, films etc. I have personally brought many of these people […]

Abandoned Aldborough House, Dublin, Ireland

Many abandoned buildings are used by squatters to sleep in, drink, take drugs or perform illegal acts. Drug use has been evident in almost every building I have photographed but has never stopped me from wanting to explore. Aldborough House was a different story. Upon arriving at the site and locating an entry point into […]

St. Mary’s Secondary School, Ballsbridge, Dublin, Ireland

This building had been a two-storey convent school for girls, erected in 1901. The number of attendees dwindled and it closed in 2007. Thankfully, I got in three days before the JCBs moved in on their prey and completely demolished it. The Department of Education plans on replacing the site with a new secondary school.

Abandoned Killiney Beach Tea Rooms, Dublin (Ireland)

This small building situated along the beautiful Killiney Beach is an eyesore. Covered in graffiti and home to endless piles of empty beer cans, this long-abandoned site is a popular attraction for ‘sessions’ (a gathering of people where copious amounts of alcohol and other substances are consumed). Now, I won’t lie – I have joined […]
