This stretch of Kildare Street is characterized by a cohesive row of late eighteenth-century brick houses that were rebuilt in the Victorian period and are distinguished by the cogged brick eaves and three-bay openings to their ground floors. The setting remains intact, with cast-iron railings to the basement area. The brickwork provides a pleasant contrast with the stonework of the more monumental buildings on the street. The terrace is relatively well retained, making a strong contribution to the character of Kildare Street and the wider historic core of south Dublin. Plaque to wall indicates that this was the home of Bram Stoker, author of Dracula.
