Dublin House Project

Dublin City Council will launch the Dublin House Project on Monday 21st July at 11 a.m. on the site to be advertised for sale at 29/30 Fishamble Street, Dublin 8.  The Lord Mayor, Christy Burke and the City Architect, Ali Grehan will be attending the launch.

Dublin House is an initiative of the Housing Department through the City Architects’ Division to promote the potential of small-scale residential development in the inner city and inner suburban areas. It is a trial initiative to enable people to be citizen developers by facilitating them to design and create their own bespoke homes for themselves in the city.

The Lord Mayor said ahead of the event: “I am delighted that Dublin City Council is introducing the Dublin House project as another initiative to encourage and enable families to live in the city centre. I look forward to seeing this initiative succeed in this historic part of the city.”

Ali Grehan, City Architect, said: “Promoting diverse owner-occupied city centre family- friendly homes is the underlying aspiration of the Dublin House project. This offers households an opportunity to come together as a group to design and develop the site in a way that suits their housing needs today and into the future. Through this innovative project Dublin City Council also wishes to address the under-provision of this type of housing delivery in the city centre and hopes that this can be replicated elsewhere.”
