Number 29, Dublin City
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.
Situated in the heart of Dublin's fashionable Georgian streets, this is a unique museum - a restored four-story town house that reflects the lifestyle of a Dublin middle-class family during the period 1790 to 1820. The exhibition ranges from artefacts and works of art of the time, to carpets, curtains, floor coverings, decorations, paintwork, plasterwork, and bellpulls The nursery also includes dolls and toys of the era.
Number 29 is open primarily on a self-guided basis for you to walk through and enjoy the Museum. However, guided tours which operate daily are also offered.
