St. Enda's House, Rathfarnham, Dublin 16. This was the house of Padraig Pearse, the Irish revolutionary who was executed for his part in the 1916 rebellion. The renowned schoolteacher's house is kept by the Parks department and the gardens are open during daylight hours. As you can see it is a fine Irish country house on three levels, incorporating some cut stone (granite). The windows are typical of this period, being sash design. A more unusual feature are the bricked openings in the middle of the house, except on the highest floor.
