Fitzwilliam Townhouse Guest House Dublin 2 and vintage images of Dublin City Centre

Fitzwilliam Townhouse near O'Connell Street Dublin
View of O’Connell Street (Sackville St.) Dublin, Nelson’s Pillar, O’Connell Monument & Horse-trams. c1900.


During the 18th century an aristocrat name Luke Gardiner had a vision for the centre of Dublin, his visionwas of a tree lined mall with residential structures and peaceful surroundings.  But in 1790 his dream was altered when Carlisle Bridge was built – now know as O’Connell Bridge.  This connecting bridge turned Sackville Street – now O’Connell Street into a very busy street and it eventually became the main thoroughfare of Dublin City Centre.

You can see from the vintage image of O’Connell Street how busy it became in c1900, with a busy tram, horses and carriages and carts going about their business.

We are framing this image and many more like it to display in the hallway in Baggot Cour Townhouse.  You can read more about vintage Dublin when you stay with us.

Fitzwilliam Townhouse Dublin Reviews 

Our room was so cute, very spacious, and clean. The Fitzwilliam B&B Dublin itself was located very close to central Dublin and was very easy to go explore by foot. It is a walk-up, and we did get a room that was all the way at the top floor, but the staff was nice and very accommodating especially given we had to leave very early in the morning. A great place to lay your head when visiting Dublin!
