This old map of Dublin, created by master surveyor and cartographer John Rocque in 1756, shows the entirety of Dublin and its suburbs. Indeed, the original name of this map was: An Exact Survey of the City and Suburbs of Dublin 1756, In Which is Express’d the Ground Plot of all Publick Buildings Dwelling Houses, Ware Houses, Stables, Court Yards, &c,"
This is the finest, most detailed map of Dublin in the 1700s. The level of detail is fantastic - and at large sizes it looks truly fantastic.
The map looks great at all sizes available,: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but the labels are definitely quite small if you go for the smallest map size.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 52x70 inches (130x180cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x18 inch (60x45cm) version of this map.
The fifth listing image shows an example of my map personalisation service.
Enjoy Dublin castle, the artillery ground, royal hospital, Usher's Island - and of course Smith Field, which no longer exists and has been replaced by the area of Smithfield! St Stephen's Green is here too.
And of course, Trinity College, founded some 150 years previously, is already quite big and developed on this map. Next door to Trinity there's Parliament House - and of course, running through the middle of the map is River Liffey.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Dublin or a proud Irishman and Irishwoman.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
