Poolbeg Power Station is a large complex of thermal, oil and gas power station units located on Poolbeg Peninsula in the eastern part of Dublin, just south of Dublin Port. There are 6 units with total generating capacity of 1,020 MW.
The name in Irish language is Cumhachtstáisiún an Phoill Bhig. The power station is operated by the state-owned Electricity Supply Board of the Republic of Ireland (ESB).
This is the Poolbeg Peninsula and the Poolbeg Power Station as seen from the east, from the Great South Wall that reaches from the Peninsula almost 4 miles into Dublin Bay. You can always recognize the power station by its characteristic two tall chimneys. Each is more than 207 metres tall and they are among the tallest structures in Ireland.

You can still see Poolbeg Power Station, at least its two tall chimneys, from a long distance – in fact at least a tip of the chimneys is visible from most parts of Dublin. This picture was taken from Sean O’Casey Bridge, not far from the Custom House. You can see the chimneys in the far back on the right side of the river.
