End-of-terrace three-bay two-storey house, built c.1840, with extension to rear and shopfront to ground floor. Fronts directly onto street. Pitched tiled roof with terracotta ridge tiles, rendered chimneystacks and cast-iron rainwater goods. Roughcast render to first floor with smooth render to ground floor, eaves course and quoins. Timber sash windows with Wyatt windows to first floor central bay, all with tooled stone sills. Segmental-headed door opening with timber panelled door flanked by sidelight with timber spoked fanlight above. Shopfront to north consisting of timber and glazed door with overlight and tripartite display window with cast-iron bars to side. Roughcast outbuildings to rear with pitched corrugated-iron roofs.


This well proportioned but modestly designed house is enlivened by its ornate doorcase and Wyatt window. The simple shopfront is representative of the modest form of many commercial outlets in mid nineteenth-century Ireland. With its intact original features, this building is still a positive contributor to the streetscape.
