Ryans Pub Historic Refurbishment

Darmody Architecture led a specialist design team to develop a detailed design to form a link between No. 3 Camden Row and the existing pub at No. 92 Camden Street. This provided new external amenity spaces whilst respecting and enhancing the existing protected structures set within an Architectural Conservation Area. Analysis of the existing structure and research into the building’s history led to the uncovering of the remains of the original 1880s shopfront structure buried beneath a 1980s soulless façade. Restoration of the decorated structural columns and Kilkenny limestone cladding began. A team of specialist contractors worked to restore and craft the public house façade to replicate the original Victorian shopfront. The project reinstated the original gravitas of a pivotal, corner building on Camden Street, Dublin 2. The building now enjoys completeness as originally intended.
