Possibly the most complete record published concerning Georgian architecture in Dublin. The five volumes of The Georgian Society Records deal comprehensively with domestic Georgian architecture in Dublin. In the volume 'Georgian Mansions' the attention is on houses outside the capital. Objects of interest outside architecture have been described and illustrated, it also endeavours to survey generally the progress of architectural developments in Ireland during the 18th century..
