I visited this museum during Heritage week so it was free but I would not have minded paying. You are met by a lady in Georgian dress and invited to watch a film first, which is great. Then you are free to roam the house. In each room, there is a person who can answer any questions you have. It... More

This is a gem of a visit - Authentic Georgian House in the middle of beautiful Fitswilliam St./ Square . Tour around and see how people lived in Georgian times in Dublin. It is beautifully restored with authentic furniture etc. The Children's room is especially worth a visit. Wonderful to bring your foreign visitors to -

If you are a history buff you will really enjoy this stop. 6e but 3e for seniors. Very nice staff and self guided tour. It takes about an hour and is worth it--also good bathrooms

Number 29 is owned by the ESB (Electricity Supply Board) who demolished a number of neighbouring georgian houses to build a monstrosity administration building beside it. Thankfully the ESB has restored this particular property to give an idea of what it would have looked like in the late 1700s. It is a self guided tour and you have to leave... More

Created as a 'mea culpa' by the ESB after they destroyed the rest of the terrace to make room for their dealt monstrous HQ building (an act of cultural vandalism by the dying old guard of mainstream Irish Republicanism that led to the creation of the Irish Georgian Society and the subsequent preservation of what was left of Georgian Dublin),...

I happened upon this lovely and inexpensive museum which captured the life of a wealthy wine merchant and his family in late 1700s Dublin. The grand entertaining rooms were very elegant; the family's bedrooms, children's room, nursery, governess's room and the kitchen and scullery opened up a window on the daily life of an upper class family in 18th century...

Wanted to see the inside of one of the Georgian homes in Dublin. This is a self tour through the the house. You don't need to spend a lot of time to see the whole house but you do need to climb stairs.

Really interesting look at life in Georgian era Dublin. Nice displays, well set up. Even a place to lock up our bags so we didn't have to lug them around the house.

On a walk through Dublin, one quickly notices all the beautiful Georgian doors that are still there more than two centuries later. One wonders what these houses were like when they were new. Well, this is the place to find out. This excellent little museum gives a history of the house and a look at the life of the well-to-do... More
