life experience. They will be warm individuals who have a passion for culture and storytelling, who can
bring the memories of 14 Henrietta Street to life, and can work with us to build and enrich the museum
story over time. All will share a love of Dublin city, community, and history.
If you like the idea of helping our visitors to feel a sense of ownership and connection with the stories of 14 Henrietta street, we want to hear from you.
Built as a townhouse for the elite of Dublin, 14 Henrietta Street was turned into tenements in the 1880s,
with some 100 people living there by 1911. It remained a tenement house until the last families left
Through video and storytelling, the visitor experience at 14 Henrietta Street tells the story of the
building’s shifting fortunes, from family home and powerbase to courthouse; from barracks to its final
incarnation as a tenement hall; the lives of the people who lived there, and how social change impacted
on them over time.
People can experience 14 Henrietta Street through pre-bookable guided tours, which run hourly from
10am to 4pm Wednesday - Saturday and from 12 noon to 4pm on Sundays. We are also developing an
additional series of talks, conversations and story gathering events, as well as corporate hire options.
