Upper Baggot St. Dublin

The Royal hospital was built to the designs of the architect Albert E. Murray in 1832. The hospital was first called Baggot Street Hospital. Its facade is of red brick and terracotta tiles.

It was later renamed The Royal City of Dublin Hospital in 1900. For more information. See: Seanad Éireann – Volume 117 – 29 October, 1987 Adjournment Matter: Baggot Street (Dublin) Hospital here  See: also Baggot Street: A Short History of the Royal City of Dublin Hospital Davis Coakley here.
