This place was built by Edward Cecil Guinness, in the late 1800's (he is the great-grandson of the founder of the brewery) The building is maintained by the Irish government as a state guest house for visiting dignitaries. Obama stayed there. Many rooms are on display during a guided tour, which lasts about an hour. Great for history buffs! Also, photography is allowed. If you are taking the trouble to go all the way to Phoenix Park, AND if you have about two hours to spare, you ought to see this place. The surroundings of the house are also worth seeing.
