    The Street behind you is Molesworth st, go down here and turn left at the end onto Dawson Street. Near the top of the street is the Mansion House,(on your left) seat of the Mayor of Dublin.
    Recently it was used for the wedding of a homeless couple- The mayor said he had an entertainment bugdet as part of his job, and he thought this was a good way to spend it.

    One Stop left- continue on up the street to St Stephen's Green

    The front door

    Next to what was the banqueting/ supper room of the Mayor but what is now a rather nice restaurant (Fado) is the Mansion House - official residence of the Lord Mayor. I do recommend the restaurant - it is large and has a good menu.

    Mansion House has a rather fine doorway - a feature of the Georgian city, though this is not quite the pattern of those.
