Canada House was built in 1970 by Tyndall Hogan and Hurley Architects, replacing a set of four originally early Georgian houses which were demolished at the time. The building is on the Stephen’s Green/Earlsfort Terrace juncture. It fronts onto Stephen’s Green South and Earlsfort Terrace on its east side. The site, comprising nos. 65-68, Stephen’s Green, is originally an early 18th century lot consisting of four houses and actually retains its original dimensions and boundaries. An assessment report by Judith Carroll and Company was carried out during September 2013 and gave details of the historical/ archaeological background to examine the archaeological potential of the site and to assess the likely impact of the development on archaeological remains. This was forwarded to Dublin City Council and was also part of the licence application for monitoring of the site. In the area of the south boundary wall it was noted that the (now culverted) River Steine ran east west to the south of the properties, directly to the south of the south boundary wall.

From records, the properties, nos. 65-68 are likely to date to the late 17th century at the earliest. This area of south Stephen’s Green was mainly developed first in the early 18th century. The south boundary wall is therefore likely to have been first built in the earliest part of the 18th century.

Monitoring commenced at 65-68 Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2, during development on the site of the former Canada House, on 08 April 2014.
