Powerscourt Townhouse Centre is a speciality shopping centre set in an elegant Georgian house just off Grafton Street. Formerly home to Richard Wingfield 3rd Viscount Powerscourt (1730-1788), this town house entertained guests during the Parliament season. A fine example of Dublin’s Georgian architecture, it is unique in showing the transition from rococo style to neo-classical under one roof.
A guided tour takes you through the kitchen and cellars, the entrance hall, Lady Powerscourt’s dressing room and bedroom, the music room, the ballroom and the dining room (all these areas are now in commercial use).
59 South William Street, Dublin 2.
