Description

In this uniquely comprehensive guide to the buildings of central Dublin, the city's churches, public buildings, and streets are described for every district in lively detail. The entire area within the canals is covered as well, along with the Phoenix Park. Illustrations include numerous maps, plans, and new color photographs. Dublin's grand eighteenth-century set-pieces-Custom House, Four Courts, Bank of Ireland-are offset by a graceful Georgian cityscape, much of which remains intact. Rich and varied house interiors are also treated in full, many for the first time. The book features civic and commercial Victorian architecture, post-war buildings, and the buildings of a new generation of Irish architects. Two fine Gothic cathedrals remain from the medieval city, the full history of which is traced in an introduction to the volume. For all who share an interest in the fabric of Dublin-architect or historian, tourist or armchair traveller-this is the essential work.
