14 Henrietta Street is a social history museum of Dublin life, from one building’s Georgian beginnings to its tenement times. We connect the history of urban life over 300 years to the stories of the people who called this place home.

This resource pack is for history teachers who wish to bring their Junior Cycle students on a visit to 14 Henrietta Street. The aim of this pack is to provide you with a toolkit of case studies, suggested activities, and further resources to help you plan lessons for your Junior Cycle history group.
