Europe’s most intimate capital is set in a broad river basin fringed by the majestic sweep of Dublin Bay and the tantalizingly close Wicklow Mountains. It is a vastly entertaining city, with much to offer the pedestrian explorer: pubs, churches, grand buildings and fine museums, elegant parks, and a people who are both boozers and talkers, down-to-earth wheeler-dealers and airy pipe-dreamers. Above all, Dublin is a place whose pulse must be taken over some time, possibly with the aid of a glass of Guinness, apocryphally tasting of the peaty waters of the Liffey.
ABOUT OUR BUILDING:
Harveys Guesthouse was built in 1787, by Lord Mount Gardiner. He was responsible for developing most of the Georgian houses built in the area. The house served as a tenement building for many years, and was considered to be located in an “undesirable” part of Dublin.
The house was purchased by Harvey family in 1965 and turned into a Guesthouse. In 1987 the Flood Family bought the house and set about returning it to its original Georgian state. Almost every floor was rebuilt from the inside: new plumbing and electrics were fitted. The house will never be complete as we are always finding new enhancements to carry out.
Some interesting side notes:
While knocking down an old wall, Robert Flood (my brother), found an old Guinness Yeast Jar, used by the original labourers back in 1787.
We also found original copies of the Irish Times newspaper detailing the event of 1787.
