A small but significant detail above, from the lovely little 1904 map by RISA scholar and historian Leonard R Strangeways.
This magical map, is an excellent guide to understanding old Dublin, in the years before the Wide Streets Commission. We use it because it’s one of the best and clearest illustrations to understand the shape and form of the medieval city and street plan.
For the full range of Dublin Decoded history, art and architecture walks and events, see here. We run both scheduled walks, to which everyone is welcome, or also bespoke walks, for birthdays, for schools, colleges, language schools, a group of friends, or your book club. To inquire about a pre-booked group walk, or about joining a scheduled walk, drop us a line anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to mention your preferred tour and preferred dates in any correspondence, thank you! -Arran
