Dragon Gate Guards Driveway: Fire and Blood (and Steel)

by Paul Strauss

There are lots of different ways to keep intruders out of your house. You could go with some garden gnomes, or possibly a gargoyle, or maybe even a statue. But nobody will mess with you if your driveway is protected by a dragon.

Before you ask, this isn’t the entrance to House Targaryen on the island of Dragonstone. It’s the front gate of Harlech House, a nearly 10,000 square foot private residence located in Goatstown, Dublin, Ireland. The house was built in 1798, but was extensively remodeled about 15 years ago. The interior of the house is quite opulent and impressive, so it’s only appropriate that access is restricted by a gate.

It’s too bad that it doesn’t breathe fire when an unwanted solicitor comes to ring the bell. That’d be neat.
