    The Story of Eustace Street and No.25 Eustace Street

    Eustace Street has a rich and varied history, famous as much for its religious nature as for its bawdy houses and bars since the 17th century.  Both Quakers and Presbyterians have a presence in Eustace Street.  The Society of Friends Meeting House, almost directly opposite No.25, has served the Quaker population that settled in the Sycamore Street locality 200 years ago.  The old Presbyterian School (now the children's centre, 'The Ark') was established in 1715, and the church served one of the richest Presbyterian parishes in the city from 1685.

    On the façade of the Friends Meeting House is a plaque commemorating the first meeting at this house, which is presumed to be the site of the Eagle Tavern, of the United Irishmen, prior to the 1798 Rebellion.

    Eustace Street was at the centre of a vibrantly theatrical area, which included Crow Street Theatre, The Smock Alley Theatre and Aungier Street Theatre.

    No. 25 was built around 1720. Despite its potentially risqué past, it was, by 1830, the respectable home of J.D. Williams & Co., Woollen Merchants, and thereafter in 1841 the counting house of W.T. Meyler & Co. Merchants.  By 1845 Patrick Costelloe, Merchant Tailor, shared No. 25 with a junior solicitor called William Bloomfield, who continued to have premises here until 1890, 45 years later.  During his tenancy, Bloomfield cohabited with up to at least 8 other solicitors at any given time.

    One of the solicitors who worked from No. 25 from 1876-1879 was Standish O'Grady, the man that Yeats dubbed 'the Father of the Irish Revival'.  Standish O'Grady began his magnum opus "O'Grady's History of Ireland" (1878-1880) while he was working here.
