No. 29 Review

Everything in this carefully refurbished 1794 home, known simply as Number Twenty-Nine, is in keeping with the elegant lifestyle of the Dublin middle class between 1790 and 1820, the height of the Georgian period, when the house was owned by a wine merchant's widow. From the basement to the attic—in the kitchen, nursery, servants' quarters, and the formal living areas—the National Museum has re-created the period's style with authentic furniture, paintings, carpets, curtains, paint, wallpapers, and even bell pulls.

    A little gem

    An excellent example of middle class georgian life in Dublin. The fact that visits are by tour only make them particularly interesting and informative.

    Worthwhile historic house

    A fascinating historic house with lots of excellent period furniture and personal effects -- focuses on the middle merchant class rather than the aristocracy. Very informative tour. Excellent.
