Dublin Powerscourt Town House images

Powerscourt Town house on South William Street in central Dublin dates from 1774 & was built as an office & town house for Lord Powerscourt, Richard Wingfield 3rd Viscount (1730-1788), of the Powerscourt Estate in County Wicklow.   A gateway to the right of the building provided an entrance to the stables & on the left for kitchen & other offices, the architect was Robert Mack.

In 1799 James Malton described it as being unhappily situated.."being shut up in a confined, but genteel street, called William Street, and it's importance is much lessened by mean Dwellings there, through which is entrance to a market, called Cattle Market, lately removed there." In 1981, the interior was refurbished & it's now the fashionable Powerscourt Townhouse shopping centre.
