About 14 Henrietta Street:
Owned and conserved by Dublin City Council and operated by Dublin City Council Culture Company, the exemplary conservation work was made possible with the support of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht via a Centenaries Capital Grant.
Through careful research and meticulous collecting, we have combined everyday stories, personal experiences and objects of former tenement residents with ongoing social and architectural history research, preserving and interpreting the memories of the building and its residents. 14 Henrietta Street is now the story of 300 years of city life, captured within the walls of one address.
