Roadmap: Dublin in 50 Buildings

Posted 2 months ago in More

Bello Bar

Pat Dargan is an architect and planner and his latest offering is an exploration of our city through 50 buildings.

All of those you’d expect are there, of course, but it’s the lesser known which trapped our thumbs whilst leaving through it.

Carter’s House is at No. 9 on the ultimate faded glory street in the city – Henrietta Street, the first Georgian Street laid out in Dublin back in 1729.

We never knew that Blackhall Place houses what is known as the Bluecoat School – originally a charitable school dating from 1671.

If nothing else, a read of this gives you a sense of history and the seepage of time through these buildings.
