In 1541 Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries and granted a lease to the Honorable Society of Kings Inns for the use of Blackfriars Monastery – now the location of the Four Courts.
Today the area encompassing Blackhall Place on the west, the Kings Inns on the east, North King Street on the north and the Quays on the south still contains a large number of well-known buildings and locations associated with the law. The area is also home to a number of legal-related bodies including the Bar Council, the Law Society, and the King’s Inns. And there are many law firms and firms of Legal Cost Accountants.
