Welcome to Number 29, ESB Georgian House Museum.

In partnership with The National Museum of Ireland the Museum highlights life in Georgian Dublin in the period, 1790 until 1820. The displays through-out the Museum are supplemented by using story boards, which provide information on each room and explain the operation of a townhouse in the Georgian period, which was lived in by an upper middle class family.
