Number Twenty Nine
Number Twenty Nine Lower Fitzwilliam Street is a completely restored middle-class house of the late 18th century. It recaptures the atmosphere and furnishings of a typical comfortable home of the period 1790-1820. From the basement to the attic it houses a unique collection of artefacts and works of art of the time.
A treasure-house of superior Irish craftwork, it includes both original and contemporary work using designs and material from the period. A visit to Number Twenty Nine includes a short audio-visual presentation`told' by Mrs. Beatty, who moved into Number Twenty Nine in 1794. She explains the 18th century lifestyle of a middle-class merchant family. Visitors are then taken (6-8 people in each group) on a guided tour of the exhibition.
