International Financial Services Centre (IFSC)
The International Financial Services Centre (IFSC), is a major financial services centre in North Wall, Dublin. The centre employs 14,000 people and was the brainchild of an associate of businessman Dermot Desmond. Both the associate and Mr Desmond approached Charles Haughey, then in opposition, who made it the centrepiece of his economic manifesto when he came back into power. The Finance Act, 1987 (Section 30) allowed for the designation of such an area. The IFSC now houses financial institutions, together with the leading law firms and accountancy and taxation advisors who support them.
The development also incorporates office accommodation, educational institutions, executive housing, restaurants and shopping facilities. It has expanded beyond its original site and has become a part of the wider Irish economy.
Our Hotel is just across from the main financial district and the perfect place to see if you are doing business in the IFSC.
