About this event

Rathmines: its history, buildings, and people with Dublin Decoded and IGS

Rathmines is one of the oldest as well as undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and distinctive of Dublin’s old “Townships”. From its origin as the site of the fort of a medieval Norman Baron, it expanded dramatically in the mid to late 19th century, with redbrick Georgian-style townhouses lining its broad streets and squares, and smaller artisan workers cottages tucked away down the side streets and alleys. It boasts some of the most interesting architecture in Dublin, including a stunning art deco post office, factory and cinema, Dublin’s largest church dome, not to mention an underground river. Rathmines was the base for a famous telescope workshop, and home to a veritable who’s who of Ireland’s revolutionary elite during the fight for Independence 1913-1922, including rebel countess Constance Markievicz. These are a hint of some of the content of our tour of the district. On this tour we mix a blend of architectural, social, literary, and political history, giving you an enjoyable variety of insights into this charismatic Dublin neighbourhood.
