Well hello there.

You're either here because you caved, and are now begging for our help – or because you confidently breezed your way through our quiz, and now you want to prove how bloody fantastic you are.

Either way, welcome. Here are the answers you so desperately crave.


Not that you needed any help with this one, but it's the Aviva Stadium in Dublin 4.

Arnotts, Henry Street – complete with its distinct glass dome.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz2


Bank of Ireland, College Green – and not the Custom House, as many undoubtedly guessed!

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz4


This was a tricky one – they're the Dublin Corporation Buildings on Wood Quay. 

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz5


The Criminal Courts of Justice building, Parkgate Street (with some Phoenix Park)

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz6


This is Dartmouth Square, between Ranelagh and Leeson Street (just south of the Grand Canal).

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz7


DIT Aungier Street (as well as the National Archives).

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz8


Dundrum Town Centre, with the Luas line visible to the right of the picture.

The building may not appear familiar, but if you spotted the style of the road and footpath to its right then you'll have twigged it – it's the GPO on O'Connell Street.

It looks like Phoenix Park on first glance, but it is of course far too small for that. It's Herbert Park, flipped 90 degrees.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz12


This, meanwhile, is Iveagh Gardens (and the National Concert Hall)

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz13


You may not recognise the building, but the structure probably gave it away – it's Mountjoy Prison.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz15


The Poolbeg Generating Station in Irishtown – with the iconic candystriped chimneys partly visible due to the angle of the shot.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz16


You may never have seen this huge body of water in the south of the county, but there's a good chance you've been within mere metres of it – and drank from it. It's the reservoir beside the Sandyford Luas depot.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz17


Smithfield Square, which looks more skinny from the sky than you might have imagined.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz18


Trinity College, with some of the playing fields.

Lovin Dublin Skyquiz19


And we finished with a dinger, but locals (and members) may have twigged that this is the Westwood Health Club beside Clontarf Road DART station.
