Appraisal

This building retains much of its early form and character, and has a long commercial history. Dublin Street Directory of 1862 lists it as the Emerald Hotel, property of John Houghton, wine and spirit merchant. It may have had a third floor which has since been removed. Window surrounds provide aesthetic interest to the fa├žade, particularly the scrolled consoles and pediments to the first floor windows. The granite paving to the front provides additional contextual interest.
