Open House Dublin 2013 – No. 31 Leeson Close

This past weekend was the annual Open House Dublin, where many buildings of historical and architectural interest are opened up for public viewing and guided tours. One of my favourite attractions for this Open House weekend is the muse at No. 31 Leeson Close, which renowned Irish Architect Sam Stephenson designed as his first home in 1958. It is now a guest house run by the very friendly new owners.
I only took detail photos unfortunately, as there were so many people around.
