Two Dublin buildings have topped the list of Ireland's favourites.

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland on York Street was voted the country's favourite building.

It got 22% of the 10,000-plus votes cast at the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) Irish Architecture Awards.

The new medical education building was designed by Henry J Lyons.

It's the second win for Lyons and architect Peter McGovern - who also took the prize in 2010 for the Criminal Courts of Justice.

Scoil Phádraig, a primary school in Westport, Co Mayo was in second place.

The SJK Architects designed 16-classroom, 2,400m2 building sits alongside a church.
