Bank of Ireland

The Bank of Ireland, College Green, (opposite the main entrance to Trinity College) was originally the Irish Parliament Building. The building was built in 1729 and was the world's first purpose built two chamber (the House of Commons and the House of Lords) parliament building.. 
The building was sold to the Bank of Ireland for £40,000 when the Irish parliament voted itself out of existence at the start of the 19th century (the Act of Union),

Many architects have admired the building and have copied features of its design and incorporated it into buildings around the world, such as the British Museum in London and Capitol Hill in Washington
