Appraisal

This building is an attractive example of an early nineteenth-century house and shopfront ensemble. It retains many of its original features including timber sash windows, cast-iron rainwater goods and a small but well executed shopfront. Located on the steeply sloped Cork Street it contributes positively to the streetscape and the overall architectural heritage of Kinsale.
