Appraisal

Two formerly separate rendered terraced buildings located on the east side of Capel Street, representing the standard nineteenth-century Georgian terrace in central Dublin. Although it has lost historic fabric the buildings by their scale and proportions continue to contribute to the historic built form of Capel Street ACA, one of the city's oldest commercial streets.
