Commissioned by Lord Iveagh in 1926, this housing scheme, designed by O'Callaghan & Webb, was constructed between 1926 and 1936. Originally known as the Guinness Trust, the Iveagh Trust was established by Edward Cecil Guinness, the first Earl of Iveagh, in 1890 to provide housing for the laboring classes in Dublin. These 136 houses were specifically built for Guinness employees. The scheme showcases early suburban architecture characterized by thoughtful design and superb craftsmanship.
