1711 – Molyneux House, Peter St., Dublin


Picturesque Dublin, old and new ... With ninety-one illustrations by Rose Barton, etc188713331043


Constructed by Sir Thomas Molyneaux as his Dublin residence, and a stylistic departure from the gabled Dutch Billies that had defined the city to date. The house had an elaborate doorway with a coat-of-arns and a carved stone with text. The interior had a fine panelled hallway and staircase.

From 1815, onwards, served as an asylum for blind women – before the construction of the Molyneux Asylum, off Leeson Street, before eventually becoming home to the Salvation Army. Demolished in 1943.
