Appraisal

This corner-sited retail building is prominently located at the corner of Capel Street and Mary Street. Surrounded by eighteenth-century buildings, the restrained detailing seamlessly stitches both streetscapes together with the use of a chamfered corner elevation. Mary Street was laid out by Humphrey Jervis, Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1681-3, in the area around Saint Mary's Abbey after buying much of this estate in 1674. This mid-nineteenth-century building adds to the varied but coherent appearance of both streetscapes.
