Fishamble Street, Dublin 2

No. 26, as it appears today, dates from the 1720s but it incorporates features such as oak beams from an earlier 17th century structure and is definitely built on the foundations of a late medieval or Tudor house. A medieval footpath can be seen in the cellar. This makes it the oldest house in Dublin and is believed to be the longest inhabited family dwelling in the city centre as the present family have been here for almost 250 years.

Fishamble Street was first laid down by the Viking's around the 10th century as a through passageway to connect the riverfront to the main market centre around High Street. It derived its name from the fish shambles or stalls which lined the street in the Middle Ages. Note the curve in the street. This was to make the pulling of carts up the incline a little easier.

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
