Aspiration One: Select an interesting personality and let the blaze of their historic path guide your trip

You don’t need to start studying intensely but a gentle exploration will uncover how many of our properties have links to wonderful iconic figures and historic personalities. Selecting a guiding force and flicking through a book or watching some clips on the Internet is a very unique and intellectually satisfying way to prepare for a trip. It means that you arrive already engaged with the property and with a sense that you have a navigational framework to enjoy. To whet your appetite, imagine booking a stay with us in the beautiful Merrion Mews in Dublin 2 and retracing the local steps of the pioneering fashion designer Sybil Connolly (1921-1998) who lived and operated her design business at 71 Merrion Square for many years. As a memorial to Sybil Connolly, Irish Landmark will be placing a memorial foot-stone in the garden that will quite simply read Enter a garden: Remember Sybil Connolly.

If the wonderful Sybil Connolly has sparked your interest and you have a few moments to learn more here is a little step back in time, capturing a feast of Sybil Connolly’s coats and dresses from the 1950’s

Sybil Connolly’s obituary written in The Economist.
