Georgian Dublin describes a time in history (1714 to 1830) when Dublin grew as a city. During this time period, four Georges were king, hence the word Georgian.

Houses built at this time had a particular style of architecture, they were all similar and very symmetrical. The Casino in Marino is a magnificent and local example of architecture of this time.

Here is a worksheet which if you have access to a printer you might enjoy. It relates directly to the Virtual Tour of No. 29 Fitzwilliam Street. It is very good but quite long so you may not want to print all of it.
