The Poolbeg Chimneys


The Poolbeg Chimneys, towering at a height of just over 207 meters, hold a significant place as iconic symbols of Dublin. These chimneys are visible from various parts of the city, establishing them as renowned landmarks and among the tallest structures in Ireland.


Rainey’s Lightning Protection (LP) system was installed on the Poolbeg Chimneys in the early 1970s. Over the years, our system has withstood and successfully intercepted more lightning strikes than any other installation in our portfolio. This accomplishment fills us with pride, as we play a vital role in safeguarding these iconic structures that hold immense importance for the people of Dublin.


As the LP system provider, we prioritize the protection of the Poolbeg Chimneys, ensuring their structural integrity and the safety of the surrounding areas. The chimneys hold a special place in the hearts of many Dubliners, and we take great pride in the responsibility entrusted to us to preserve their iconic status.


Rainey remains dedicated to maintaining the reliability and effectiveness of the LP system installed on the Poolbeg Chimneys, reflecting our commitment to protecting these cherished landmarks for generations to come.
