Walk through Georgian Dublin at Number Twenty Nine, where each room has been meticulously restored to its original state. The Beatty family was the first to live in the house with their seven children. David Beatty, the father of the family, died young and left Olivia Beatty to raise her children in the comfortable home. Take a self-guided tour through the rooms, where you'll find plenty of information boards with stories about the house. The site also offers a guided public tour each afternoon on a first come, first-served basis.

  • Unique museum. Time travel back to the 18th century Irish ascendancy and see the toys the children played with, the kitchens the servants toiled in and the rooms the gentlemen caroused in. Recommended
  • A very interesting museum in Dublin, definitely a place to visit whilst there. Georgian style house.
  • Definitely a place to be visited if you're in Dublin. Very nice experience for those who want to see how Gergian houses used to be. Nice and friendly staff. :) Loved it!
  • This is a very interesting, off of the main tourist route, museum. Any fan of Upstairs-Downstairs will enjoy seeing a "real" Georgian townhouse. Not as upscale as one would think from sanitized TV shows. The guide enjoyed sharing the rougher side of life in the late 18th century. Special hanging shelves to keep the rats out of the food, chamber pots in every room that got dumped out the back windows into the "garden", cold living conditions in upscale homes, and people that slept sitting up due to chronic chest infections. Outside, the crime and poverty were terrible, so living in 1800 Dublin sounds about like living in a bad building in the South Bronx in the 1970's. But I keep thinking about all those chamber pots, I guess you would get used to the smell.......
