Stop 5 - National Gallery
  Merrion Square
Merrion Square is the largest Georgian square in the city and is surrounded by original Georgian Buildings. These are distinguished by the simplicity and elegance of their exteriors. The beautiful Merrion Square Park is open to the public.
  Number 29
On the corner of Fitzwilliam Street and Mount Street you'll find Number 29. Built in 1794, this former home of a wine merchant's widow has been lovingly restored in every detail to depict a middle class Georgian household. Maintained by the National Museum, No. 29 is well worth a visit.
