Dublin Visit 3

Once one of Dublin’s grandest districts, the area around Henrietta Street fell from favour to the more fashionable south side, with many properties divided into tenements following the 1801 Act of Union which abolished the Irish parliament and removed the need for the aristocracy to visit the city.

13 Henrietta Street is a remarkable survival. Built in 1743 and subdivided, the Case’s bought the property in the early 1970s and restored it to a single residence, uncovering its faded granduer, reminiscent of a Sicilian palazzo… Thanks to our generous hosts for sharing it with us and interpreting its many nuances, not least the levee and the cabinet…
