Number 29 Lower Fitzwilliam Street information
In an effort to atone at least partly for its sins against Dublin’s Georgian heritage – it broke up Europe’s most perfect Georgian row to build its headquarters – the Electricity Supply Board (ESB) carefully restored this home to give an impression of genteel family life at the beginning of the 18th century.
