Public housing scheme of 1921-1923 by C.J. McCarthy and Horace O’Rourke. According to Christine Casey it was regarded by Dublin Corporation as their magnum opus. Considerable variety of house types and although close to the city centre it has the feeling of a garden suburb.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Number 150 bus from city centre serves Oscar Sq. St Thomas Rd stop. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather. Wheelchair accessible.

Location: Oscar Square, Off Cork St, Dublin 8
