An elegant block in Portland stone at the corner of Cork Hill and Castle Street, doubled in length on Cork Hill by an 1862 addition. Ivory’s original plan comprised three rooms with a large stair hall, with the site’s irregular boundaries concealed by the use of oval rooms. The interior has been recently renovated and retains fine decoration, with highlights including the larger 1st floor oval room and the highly decorated ceiling over the stair hall.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Photography is not allowed on this tour.
