Much of the west side of Parnell Street is modern but pockets of older buildings can still be found, although their condition leaves much to be desired. Most noticeably, is the section of the street at the junction with Capel Street and Ryders Row. However some of the last remaining Georgians have recently fallen foul of the wrecking ball.
The properties, Nos. 3, 4 and 5 and a derelict site at No.6 bounding onto Jervis Lane have been partially demolished having fallen into dereliction over a period of years. A site notice is in place for a proposed boutique hotel which incorporates a restored No 3 (which is a protected structure). The application hasnt been posted online yet, so no details.
In 2008, a wildly overscaled mess was proposed for the site but refused by DCC http://www.dublincity.ie/swiftlg/apas/run/WPHAPPDETAIL.DisplayUrl?theApnID=4752/08&theTabNo=2&backURL=%3Ca%20href=wphappcriteria.display?paSearchKey=1407262%3ESearch%20Criteria%3C/a%3E%20%3E%20%3Ca%20href='wphappsearchres.displayResultsURL?ResultID=1759527%26StartIndex=11%26SortOrder=APNID:asc%26DispResultsAs=WPHAPPSEARCHRES%26BackURL=%3Ca%20href=wphappcriteria.display?paSearchKey=1407262%3ESearch%20Criteria%3C/a%3E'%3ESearch%20Results%3C/a%3E
It appears that DCC are at least engaged in trying to preserve what is left of the buildings (in an ACA after all) and ensuring the best outcome for the site.
Opposite, the large site at Ryders Row continues to rot and decay. A blight at the top end of Parnell Street
