Award winning author and former Irish children’s laureate, Siobhán Parkinson takes you on an easy walk around Dublin’s Georgian squares. She explores why these streets look the way they do, and uncovers the lives of the people who lived here. From Merrion Square’s grand scale, to the smaller Fitzwilliam Square, you will learn about some quirky features of Dublin’s Georgian houses. And you will get to design some Georgian building features of your own! Peppered with questions to keep you thinking, this trail will help you step back 250 years into a very different Dublin.
The trail finishes outside Number 29, a restored Georgian house, sadly currently closed for refurbishment but available for a virtual tour at the Number 29 Website. (Video below embedded from the Number 29 website).
