The smallest and the last of Dublin’s great Georgian squares was completed in 1825. It’s also the only one where the central garden is still the private domain of the square’s residents. William Dargan (1799–1867), the railway pioneer and founder of the National Gallery, lived at No 2, and the artist Jack B Yeats (1871–1957) lived at No 18.

Look out for the attractive 18th- and 19th-century metal coal-hole covers. The square is now a centre for the medical profession.
