A Viking House and Garden
March 17, 2014

Building Blog

Construction of the Viking House has begun at the National Botanic Gardens. The house will be a faithful replica of similar buildings excavated at Wood Quay and Fishamble Street in the late 1980s. The house will represent a typical Dublin house and its associated garden of 1000 years ago. Eoin Donnelly has harvested oak, ash and hazel for the project, and will be overseeing the building works over the next 2 months.
Keep up to date with building progress over the next 3 weeks . . .
