Number 59 South William Street was the Townhouse of Richard and Amelia Wingfield, Lord and Lady Powerscourt, in the Eighteenth Century. Their main residence was Powerscourt Estate in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow and Lord Powerscourt was a member of the House of Lords.
The Townhouse was used to host dinner parties and dances when Parliament was in session. Their guests were wowed by the beautiful stucco work on the ceilings and walls of the Staircase, the Dining Room and the Ballroom.
Lord Powerscourt did the Grand Tour and was inspired by French and Italian art so the Townhouse was filled with paintings and antiques. When Lord Powerscourt died the Townhouse was sold to the Irish Government who commissioned Francis Johnstone to add groups of buildings to be used as tax offices.
In the 1980s, almost 200 years after the Wingfields lived there, it was converted into Powerscourt Shopping Centre which was nominated for a European award. The Antique shops made the former tax offices their home and filled them with beautiful paintings, silver, china and jewellery. A case of history repeating itself! You might even discover a piece that once belonged to Lord and Lady Powerscourt!
