The Mansion House is the official residence of the Lord Mayor of Dublin during his or her term of office. The house was purchased for use as a Mayoralty House by Dublin Corporation from Joshua Dawson in 1715 and is the earliest continuously occupied townhouse in Dublin. It is a unique building because of its great age, its particular architectural style, and for the continuous role the house has played in the civic history of Dublin.
