Home > > A little about Georgian Dublin architecture

From her humble beginnings as a Viking trading port to a walled medieval city and then, in a glorious century of expansion, to an elegant Georgian metropolis with wide streets, gracious squares and great houses, neatly bordered by its two canals, Dublin is a city that will capture your heart.
In the 18th century the city acquired this beautiful and distinctive style of architecture. Dublin Georgian architecture is so called as this was a style developed between 1714 to 1830. Four King George's reigned in this period, hence the adaption of the name Georgian Dublin.
