Preston Street Dublin
Preston Street lies off Amiens Street on Dublin's north side, in the civil parish of St. Thomas, & was developed between 1810 and 1817. At little more than 150 feet in length, Preston Street is one of Dublin's shortest streets, but its houses boast many original Regency features. The last surviving Huguenot Refugee made his home here as did many sea captains, merchants & musicians. The coming of the railway in the early 1840s shaped the character and destiny of the street.
