Thanks Paul. Isn't it amazing the way the Ilac swallowed up so much of that area?

Is 1 the old Dolphin Hotel, now a courthouse? I'm finding it hard to reconcile the corner turret with the blocky building just visible along the left-hand edge, though...

Aye- that was in my head too. Certainly has that early classicism look to it, but the proportions look a bit slender.
Dr Steeven's maybe? Dublin Castle? Long Library? And then I think it's a side door of a church somewhere... The tablet behind the crest is most unusual.

What is the closest "Road" to O'Connell Street?
