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 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.

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