The original Townhouses were the elegant family homes of two famous playwrights - Dion Boucicault (1829 - 1890) and Lafcadio Hearn (1850 - 1904).
Their memories have been honoured by displays in the lobby of memorabilia, photographs and original playbills.
Both men had colorful and singular lives - their histories are re-counted in full in the lobby.
Each bedroom is named after one of their works.
1997 saw the addition of The Townhouse Mews - a new wing in a beautiful minimalist style - oak wooden floors, designer furniture and elegant simplicity.
It is alternative and complimentary to the Georgian buildings of The Townhouse.
The Townhouse is the perfect location for just about everyone. With Croke Park only minutes walk, the O2 Arena, I F S C, not to mention Temple Bar a short stroll, and of course pubs and restaurants within a two minute walk.
