Dublin's Georgian Doorways
Mount Street Dublin
1882 – Former Masonic Girl’s School, Merrion Road, Dublin
1790s – Mount Street, Dublin
Probably named after the mount of Gallows Hill, which lay between here and modern Baggot Street which, was known as Gallows Road in 1757 and is shown in Rocque’s map of 1756. There are confusingly two Mount Streets near each other but which do not intersect or meet, Upper and Lower Mount Streets, as well as Mount Street Crescent into which the Upper street opens. These doorways are from Upper Mount Street.
