South Georgian District
‘South Georgian Dublin’ has three major Dublin tourist attractions: Trinity College (which houses the Book of Kells); Merrion Square; and St. Stephen’s Green.
These aren’t the only tourist attractions in this area. Many of the best museums in Dublin are also nearby. Dublin’s national museums are all free and the ones near to Pearse station include: The National Museum of Ireland; The National Library; and the National Gallery of Ireland.
The area is shaped like a triangle pointing towards the South-West; with the South-West corner of St.Stephen’s Green at it’s head. Pearse Street Station (which is served by the Dart) is at the centre of the base of this triangle and is only a few minutes away from any of the attractions.
The South Georgian area has some stunning Georgian houses, which are still functioning as homes. Georgian houses are known for their beautiful symetry and their red or tan bricks. Their big arched doorways and big windows add to the elegance of this style of architecture.
