SOUTH WILLIAM STREET IN FEBRUARY
Someone mentioned to me that there are currently seventeen restaurants on South William Street … someday I might go to the trouble of checking this claim.
South William Street, laid out in 1676 by William Williams, was part of the expansion of Dublin in the 17th century as the city outgrew the medieval walls. The street became a prominent area of the city in the 18th century and what can be seen today is mainly a legacy from that era. Today, the street has one of the largest and most complete groups of 18th century merchants’ houses in Dublin.
