Henrietta Street

Street in North of the Liffey

Henrietta St dates from the 1720s and was the first project of Dublin’s pre-eminent Georgian developer, Luke Gardiner. It was designed as an enclave of prestigious addresses (Gardiner himself lived at No 10), and remained one of Dublin’s most fashionable streets until the Act of Union (1801). It's a wonderful insight into the evolution of Georgian residential architecture, and features mansions of varying size and style.
