Number Twenty Nine,Georgian House Museum
Number Twenty Nine is Dublin’s Georgian Museum. Visitors take a guided tour
from the basement to the attic, through rooms which have been furnished with
originial artefacts as they would have been in the years 1790 to 1820.
Number Twenty Nine Lower Fitzwilliam Street, was first occupied in 1794, during a
time of great change and expansion in Ireland’s Capital. The first occupant was
Mrs Olivia Beatty, the widow of a prominent Dublin wine merchant. Visiting the
exhibition gives young and old alike a chance to experience what life was like
for the fortunate who lived in such elegant townhouses and the less fortunate
who worked in them. The exhibition is a partnership between Electricity Supply Board and the National Museum of Ireland, and has played an important role since 1991 in making more accessible the history of late Georgian Dublin.
