Pearse Street stretches from the city centre to where the circular line of the Grand Canal meets the sea. Sited on land reclaimed from the Liffey estuary, it is a relatively young street, coming to prominence in the early 19th century as a grand commercial thoroughfare planned by the Wide Streets Commissioners flanking the grounds of Trinity College. With a highly eclectic building stock dating from a variety of periods, Pearse Street is one of the most fascinating streets in Dublin. Featuring an extensive chapter outlining a vision for the future of the thoroughfare, this book will bring you on a journey through the social and architectural history of Pearse Street.
