Dublin and its vicinity in 1797

Rolf Loeber, Magda Stouthamer-Loeber


This paper presents an hitherto unnoticed travel journal, describing Dublin and its vicinity in the summer and autumn of 1797. Its anonymous author, P.S., had a keen eye for architecture and describes many public buildings in the metropolis, such as the newly built Custom House and the Four Courts. In and outside of the city, he gives an account of private mansions, such as Leinster House, Charlemont House, Castletown House, Carton, and Lord Charlemont's Casino at Marino. The travel journal also focuses on landscape scenery and presents descriptions of demesnes, waterfalls and garden cottages and temples, many features of which have been since lost.
