    The Irish Centre has been closed since 1997, and since then its condition has really deteriorated. The ceilings are bending in, the roof is full of holes and it's just rotting away.

    We visited this one on a 'scraping the barrel' kinda morning, we didn't think we'd have much chance of getting inside but we were pleasantly surprised. The building is really great looking inside, despite all the decay.. If anything it adds to the 'faded grandeur' look.
    The building is pretty much made up of a bunch of bars, its restaurant and its main ballroom.

    Visited with AndyK

    History (Wiki based):

    The Wellington Rooms were designed by Edmund Aikin and built between 1815-1816 as a subscription assembly room for the Wellington Club. Originally used by high society for dance balls and parties, and later became The Irish Centre, which closed in 1997.

    It's built in Neo-classical style and is Grade II* listed

    I think the bottom of the barrel is a lot further down than that, looks sweet, nicely done.
