House of the week | The place at the top, by Tina-Marie O’Neill

The Sunday Business Post, Sunday, September 13th 2015 

“House of the week is a luxury penthouse in Dún Laoghaire.

The penthouse moniker has at times been used somewhat loosely in Ireland. A basic top-floor apartment does not a penthouse make. By definition, a penthouse is an apartment or dwelling on the highest floor of an apartment building that is typically differentiated from other apartments by luxury features.

A case in point is the penthouse atop The Pavilion on Marine Road in Dún Laoghaire in South Co Dublin. Number 34 is a definitive penthouse in that it fulfils its structural requirement, surpasses its decorative obligation and as an additional courtesy offers magnificent panoramic views of Dún Laoghaire Harbour and across Dublin Bay to Howth Head.”
