Dublin's Tenement History

The stunning building has a rich history inside that bears the true heart and history of Ireland’s capital. Through many years, 14 Henrietta Street was home to Lord Viscounts, Lord Chancellors, Bishops, Solicitors, Judges, Courts, Barracks, and about 100 years ago - multiple families all crammed into tenement flats.

14 Henrietta Street - Reviews
Very interesting Tour
"Joe was our excellent tour guide today. Very informative and enjoyable, a mix of listening to Joe and video mix. Great to hear stories of games played by children who were residents of the tenements, I recognised a few of the rhymes."
A MUST FOR EVERY DUBLINER AND IRISH PERSON
"One of the best afternoons i have spent in a Museum . Phelim our guide had a excellent understanding of that period in time. Absolute value for Money."
"Fantastic tour of a fabulous Georgian house from the 1700s. Phelim, our tour guide was brilliant. Extremely knowledgeable and engaging through the whole tour. The house itself is fascinating, so much history from the richest of the rich to the poorest of the poor that lived there. I would highly recommend this tour and its great to see Dublin's history preserved in such a wonderful building."
