An early nineteenth-century Georgian house that was likely built as a pair with No. 33 and has been converted for use as offices. The house retains the well-balanced proportions and graded fenestration pattern typical of the period and is enriched with a decorative doorcase featuring Ionic columns and carved entablature. No. 34 displays a fine classical doorcase, good ironwork to the front windows and has an intact setting, all contributing strongly to the historic and largely cohesive character of Baggot Street, which has been fairly well retained along this northeast stretch. Development of Baggot Street began at the west end in the late eighteenth century, but was slow due to the recession at that time. There are many signs of speculative building on the street, including variation in levels, materials and detailing. However, by the mid-nineteenth century Baggot Street had developed into a thriving residential thoroughfare.
