Aungier Street lies in the south part of the inner city, about a quarter of a mile west of St. Stephen's Green. A major thoroughfare, it was the first planned street in post-medieval Dublin. Francis Aungier laid it out in 1661, about a decade before the construction of St. Stephen's Green.

Plans are currently underway to revitalize this important old street, which has fallen a long way from its 17th and 18th century splendor.
