In the early 1790s, King’s Inns was obliged to leave the buildings at Inns Quay (now the location of the Four Courts) that it had occupied from 1541. Some years elapsed before James Gandon was commissioned (in 1800) to produce drawings for the dining hall and library at Constitution Hill. This commission became “a favourite study” for Gandon and was to be his last public building in Dublin.
