Grangegorman Mental Asylum, Dublin (Ireland)

Grangegorman Mental Asylum was part of St. Brendan’s Hospital, a psychiatric facility located in Grangegorman, Co Dublin. Part of the hospital is still open today with 100 mentally ill patients living in old buildings on site.

The Asylum was a derelict building across the road, a short hop over a wall and situated in the middle of a massive overgrown field of nettles. As of now (2017), the site has been demolished and rebuilt as a new library campus forΒ Dublin Institute of Technology.
