1740 – Tyrone House, Marlborough St., Dublin

Architect: Richard Cassels


Cassels designed this Dublin town house for Marcus Beresford, Earl of Tyrone, in Marlborough Street between 1740 and 1745. A fine example of Cassels’ robust sober style. The central Venetian window above the principal entrance is the sole example of decoration or flamboyance to this dramatically severe facade. The building boasts a handsome staircase and good stucco work by Francini. Now the Department of Education & Skills, a facsimile of the building was constructed nearby to create a symmetrical composition with the Model School as the focal point.
