Bricked up windows like this are common in Ireland. In fact, some public edifices were built with windows bricked up like this -- the "windows" were required by the architectural style, but didn't actually admit light. This was because the English tax system extracted money proportional to a building's amount of window space. (Hence, according to some sources, the phrase "daylight robbery".)

That's interesting. This one is in The Rocks in Sydney - any idea why it would be done here?
