1820 – Harbour Commissioner’s House, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin


Built in the neo-classical style with Dalkey granite in 1820. Contains an unusual staircase and is surmounted by a clock tower and signalling turret. Recently restored externally as the centrepiece of a modern office and residential complex. A proposed rebuilding by E.T. Owen of the Board of Works in 1881 was never carried out.
