Corner-sited three-bay single-storey former carriage-archway, built c. 1830, with single-storey flat-roofed twentieth-century block to rear. Segmental-headed archway to centre, now infilled and in use as offices, with foliate ornament to spandrels and flanked by pilasters, in turn flanked by narrower segmental-headed recesses (north-western having window and southwestern being blind) and flanked by pilasters. Flat roof concealed behind painted moulded granite eaves cornice with pediment details, with cast-iron rainwater goods to rear elevation. Rendered brick walls. Square-headed window opening to northwest end has rendered reveals, painted granite sill and six-over-six pane timber sliding sash window lacking horns; similar window to rear has horns. Decorative cast-iron railings to front, on carved granite plinth, with similar double-leaf gate to middle, enclosing garden area. Located on north side of Baggot Street Lower at junction with Herbert Place, abutted by No. 73 to northwest.


An attractive former carriage-arch, designed in the form of a triumphal arch. It is now infilled, with a modern office behind, but it stands as a reminder of the days of horse and carriage. The railings are the work of a skilled artisan and enhance the setting. The street is one of the ancient routeways out of the city of Dublin, named for Robert Baggot, a local landowner. It was developed in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries as part of the eastern expansion of the Georgian city.
