Dublin's Georgian squares are 18th-century architectural gems and this is the first publication to examine each of them in detail. Essays by conservation architects describe the planning, design and construction of Parnell, Mountjoy, Merrion, Fitzwilliam and Mountpleasant Squares, giving an overview of each and focusing on notable houses and interiors, along with the central parks, mews buildings and street furniture. With contributions from Mary Bryan, Anthony Duggan, John Heagney, Loughlin Kealy, Nicola Matthews and Susan Roundtree.

An introductory essay by Professor Loughlin Kealy, School of Architecture, University College Dublin, places these developments in the overall context of Georgian Dublin.
