Number Twenty-Nine


Number Twenty-Nine review Rate it

This restored 18th-century merchant house is presented as a middle-class dwelling circa 1790-1820. It stands proudly on the corner of one of the most elegant vistas in Dublin, a long neo-classical perspective stretching from Merrion Square West down Mount Street. From furniture - comfortable rather than opulent - and paintings through to toys and personal effects, the interior of this property is a treasure trove of Georgian style. Dublin history buffs will also be intrigued by the collection of prints, oil paintings and watercolours, many of which offer interesting perspectives on the city itself and one or two of its key residents (James Petrie's haunting portrait of revolutionary Robert Emmet being a notable example).
