1817 - Arthur Guinness (1768-1855) of James's Gate and Beaumont, Artane. He bought the house in 1819 from the executors of Denis O'Brien (his son Arthur of Upper Gardiner Street, and Marie O'Brien, spinster of Rahan Lodge, King's Co.). He became his Father's partner and, in 1803, his main successor and, in fact if not in name, the head of the family. Shrewd, forthright and immensely able, he served in the Farming Society of Ireland, the Dublin Ballast Office, the Ouzel Galley Society, the Meath Hospital, the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and other bodies. A director of the Bank Of Ireland, his main interest after 1815 was in banking.

His wife, Anne, daughter of Benjamin Lee of Merrion died here on 21st February 1817. His brother, Edward (1772-1833), a solicitor, lived in No.2 Granby Row. This house is included in the property mentioned in the marriage settlement of Arthur's son, Reverend William Smyth Guinness (1795- 1864), Vicar and Rector of Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow, and Susan Jane, daughter of Benjamin Guinness of Eccles Street, who were married in St. George's, Hardwicke Place on 9th March 1826.
