We stayed in Dublin at Bewley's Hotel in Ballsbridge. The mosaic at the entrance represents its history.
"In 1788 Bartholomew Ruspini and nine fellow Freemasons met in London to discuss plans for establishing a charitable institution for the daughters of Masons who had fallen on hard times or whose death had meant hardship for their families... In 1792, a small house, affording accommodation for twenty girls, was taken in Dublin where the pupils were boarded, clothed and educated until such time as they could earn their own living...An impressive newly-built school was opened in 1881."
