Fergal McGirl - Conservation architect dublin

42-43 henry street, dublin


We were engaged by Savills Building Consultancy in 2022 to provide an overall conservation strategy and heritage impact assessment to the change of use of the upper floors of the building to residential use.

The building was reconstructed following the 1916 Rising by the architects Donnelly, Moore, Keefe and Robinson, for Jeremiah O’Dwyer, a wine and spirit merchant, and the builders were J. and R. Thompson. Similar to much of Henry Street, the building displays an early twentieth-century interpretation of neoclassicism.

The planning application was successful and the fact that residents could make a return to Dublin’s Henry Street for the first time in decades attracted interest in an Irish Times Article in April 2023.
