Identified in the Dublin Civic Trust, 'Survey of Gable-fronted and Other Early Buildings of Dublin', (2012), this modest building would appear to be early eighteenth century, or possibly late seventeenth century, in date, making it a significant addition to the street's historic building stock. Located in Capel Street ACA and accommodating shops and offices to upper floors, it is representative if the mixed tenure common in Capel Street, one of Dublin's oldest commercial areas.
