A folly with a millionaires view

The Pyramid of Dublin was constructed in 1852 and is classified as an ‘odd stepped pyramidal folly’. It was commissioned by Robert Warren who bought these lands in 1840 and enlarged the house on the lands and renamed it, Killiney Castle. He added to the monuments on the hill, repairing the 1741 commemoration obelisk and donated land and most of the money for the building of Killiney parish church. His son, Robert Warren Jnr, purchased more land on this hill during the period of Queen Victoria’s jubilee and subsequently re-named it Victoria Hill. This is a magical spot where you can enjoy some of the finest views of Dublin Bay.
