If you have visited Dublin before, you would have definitely come across Dublin’s famous colourful doors, built in 18th century following a strict Georgian architectural style. To counteract the strict rules of this architectural style Dublin’s residents decided to add some personality and differentiation to their homes by painting their front doors in whatever colour they desired.

The colourful Georgian doors of Dublin can be seen all around the city, but the best examples can be found in areas such as Baggot and Leeson Street as well as Merrion and Mountjoy Square.
