14 Henrietta Street – Georgian townhouse to tenement dwelling

Set in a Georgian townhouse, 14 Henrietta Street tells the story of the building’s shifting fortunes, from family home and powerbase to courthouse; from barracks to its final incarnation as a tenement house.

The stories of the house and street mirror the story of Dublin and her citizens.

See the house, hear its stories and discover the layers of Dublin history within its walls.
