Teatime Talks

Teatime Talks is a series of talks inspired by the history, people and surroundings of 14 Henrietta Street.

We share stories and uncover history related to the house and those who lived there. Teatime Talks responds to the things we learn about 14 Henrietta Street, to highlight hidden histories, elaborate on recurring themes and tell the stories of the house and its people.

Before March 2020, we were welcoming speakers to 14 Henrietta Street on the last Wednesday of every month to discuss a wide range of topics related to the building and the wider Dublin history it reflects.

Teatime Talks have since moved online and we’re now hosting these free online talks twice a month over Zoom.

We’ve welcomed historians, authors, former residents, and local experts to share their knowledge with us. Together, we’ve explored the importance of football in the inner city, considered the evolution of worker’s housing in Dublin, delved into the lives of historic figures like Margaret Skinnider and Séan O’Casey, and much more.

If you’d like to explore the history of Dublin through the unique lens that 14 Henrietta Street provides, take a look at the upcoming Teatime Talks below.

All talks are free but places must be booked in advance.
