More About The Georgian Quarter

The Georgian Quarter around Merrion and Fitzwilliam Squares is one of the largest intact 18th century period districts remaining in Europe. With its gracious terraced houses, parks and the institutions of the Museum & Government/Quarter this is an area whose memories and sights will stay with you for a long time.

While many of the Georgian mansions are now offices of one sort or another their external appearances still recall an era of the elegant aristocracy and their genteel lifestyle. Each of the tall houses, designed in perfect harmony with its neighbours, is adorned with a distinct hall door and entrance giving Dublin one of the city’s most distinctive icons; the Georgian door.

Once their own private domain, Merrion Square Park is a quite oasis adorned with meandering pathways, secluded corners and a rich tapestry of commemorative statuary. The most famous statue and one of the most cleverly crafted examples in the world is the one honoring Oscar Wilde, one of the most illustrious sons of Dublin. For fans of James Joyce no visit to this area would be complete without calling into Sweny's Pharmacy. Containing an interior that has hardly changed since first opening in the 1850s, this pharmacy is featured in Joyce’s seminal work, Ulysses, and is today a working shrine to this literary genius.

Perhaps the most rewarding element of this tour is a visit to the campus of Ireland's oldest university, Trinity College, and a visit to the Book of Kells, one of the world's earliest manuscripts to survive into modern times.
