This house/shop is part of a rare survival of a relatively intact traditional Irish small-town streetscape. Its taller form, flanked by lower neighbours, forms part of a visually appealing undulating roofscape. Its façade is enlivened by the decorative render window surrounds and the well-executed shopfront.
