The Lord Mayor's Residence, since 1715. Mansion House was originally constructed as a private dwelling by property developer Joshua Dawson, after whom Dawson Street is named. He sold it to the corporation of Dublin in 1715.
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
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.
The Mansion House is the official residency of the Lord Mayor Of Dublin. One of the most impressive rooms in the house is the Round Room where the first dail assembled in 1919 to proclaim the Irish Declaration of Independence.
Built in 1710, the Mansion House is the official residence of the Lord Mayor since 1713. The Lord Mayor, who is the first citizen of Dublin, is elected every July by the City Council from amongst its members. The term of office is one year. The first Irish Parliament adopted the Declaration of Independence here in 1919.
