Thank you Zoë from the Irish Georgian Society who made this possible.
A beautiful location with an interesting history.
And if any of you own a period house, the Irish Georgian Society is giving 12 lunchtime talks on the subject of 'Conserving your Dublin Period House', with topics as varied as legislation, extensions, taking care of your roof, chimneys and parapets, the importance of using lime and historic pointing techniques, etc.
(And if you would like to invite us to sketch inside and outside your period house, just let us know - we're always on the lookout for interesting locations!)
Apologies for the quality of some of the photos - the light wasn't great in Grogan's pub across the road. A wonderful pub, by the way. We should sketch there some day, if we can get a seat!
