The Iveagh Buildings, built of terracotta brick, are 16 affordable housing buildings located in and around Dublin city centre. They were promoted by Guinness Trust, founded in 1890 by Sir Edward Guinness, great-grandson of the founder of the Guinness Brewery, to help homeless people and workers of Dublin.
From North to South they traverse Ross St., Bride Road and Bull Alley St. From East to West they traverse Patrick St. and Bride St. The most southerly façade, which house Liberties College faces into the Iveagh Gardens and St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral. Then follows Marsh’s Library, where Jonathon Swift wrote Gulliver’s Travels. Many of the buildings are five stories high. The Iveagh complex appeared in the "Michael Collins" film (1996).
Project date: ca. 1900
