Dublin in 50 Buildings

Availability: Out of stock

Dublin was established as a Viking settlement in the early Middle Ages and following the Norman Invasion of Ireland it rapidly grew in size and importance to become a major city in Ireland. Following the English conquest of Ireland in the 16th century Dublin continued to develop as a centre of trade and its growing prosperity into the 18th century is demonstrated by the city’s rich Georgian architectural legacy from that period which still forms an important part of the character of the city today. Following independence in 1922 Dublin became the capital city of Ireland and although the fabric of the city centre suffered during 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish War of Independence and the subsequent Civil War, it has been at the forefront of the economic expansion of Ireland in recent decades. Today Dublin has many significant modern buildings standing alongside its more historical architectural legacy.

Dublin in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating city through a selection of its most interesting buildings. These buildings represent four major architectural and historic periods, starting from the mediaeval period, through the Georgian and later Victorian times, to the modern era. This book will include the well-known examples of buildings from these periods, from the Norman Dublin Castle, to the Georgian Customs House by the River Liffey to the 20th-century Guinness Storehouse, as well as buildings that may be less well known but are equally interesting. The book will appeal to all those who live in Dublin or who have an interest in the capital city of Ireland.
