Self-Catering Accommodation at Georgian Townhouse
A timeless Georgian House with three bedrooms in the heart of Dublin’s Cultural quarter.
Feel very privileged to have stayed here, it makes me feel that I am doing more than just visiting Dublin. I feel connected to the past. Loved the warm comfortable beds.
The visit to this wonderful land has been just that, WONDERFUL!! The house has just been great to stay in. Many thanks for a wonderful time, not to forget Shirley who on our arrival welcomed us with warmth and a smile, a very rare thing these days.
Thank you for this special haven of peace in the middle of mad, marvellous Dublin.
This property allows guests to step back in time and experience the elegance of a former way of life. The living room has a Bechstein boudoir piano while the main bathroom on the top floor has a free standing bath to soak away one’s cares.
Eustace Street has a rich and varied history, famous as much for its religious nature as for its bawdy houses and bars since the 17th century. Both Quakers and Presbyterians have a presence in Eustace Street. The Society of Friends Meeting House, almost directly opposite No.25, has served the Quaker population that settled in the Sycamore Street locality 200 years ago. The old Presbyterian School (now the children’s centre, ‘The Ark’) was established in 1715, and the church served one of the richest Presbyterian parishes in the city from 1685.
No. 25 was built around 1720. Despite its potentially risqué past, it was, by 1830, the respectable home of J.D. Williams & Co., Woollen Merchants, and thereafter in 1841 the counting house of W.T. Meyler & Co. Merchants. By 1845 Patrick Costelloe, Merchant Tailor, shared No. 25 with a junior solicitor called William Bloomfield, who continued to have premises here until 1890, 45 years later. During his tenancy, Bloomfield cohabited with up to at least 8 other solicitors at any given time.
