Upper George's Street runs from the top of Marine Road to the junction at Glenageary Road but I only explored a section of it this visit.
For about ten years I was employed by Ericsson and was based at the Adelphi Centre [the name has changed] on Upper George's Street and it was a great location and there was a good selection of restaurants nearby. There was a Chinese Restaurant that we all visited every Friday. Unfortunately the company relocated our operation to Clonskeagh which one employee described as a "desert with windows" and within nine months I took early retirement which was an excellent decision.
Originally there was just one George's Street rather than an Upper and a Lower street. The combined street was named after George IV who visited the town in 1821, and changed the town name to Kingstown. In 1838, the Kingstown Town Commissioners recommended that Upper George's Street would extend from Forty Foot Road (Now Marine Road) to Longford Terrace (Now Park Road) and Sam Smith's Road (Now Lower Glenageary Road).
