- King's Inns is James Gandon's last building. Gandon closed off the then much-sought-after Henrietta Street address to create this fine public building. The charming cupola was added in 1816 by Francis Johnston and construction was completed the following year. The gardens are a beautiful place to take a stroll, once you've been inside and seen the dining hall and Registry of Deeds. Edward Smyth is responsible for the exquisite caryatids on the west façade. Note the man holding the quill and book: he is a personification of the Law itself.
