The Hotel on Sussex Road, now the Clayton, will be forever remembered by Dubliners as the Burlington. Built by P.V. Doyle in 1972, the hotel replaced an old estate house, Tullamaine Villa.
In the 1870s the recorded owners were Misses Georgina and Catherine Power of Tullamaine Villa, Upper Leeson St, Dublin (who owned 228 and 300 acres respectively in county Tipperary). At the turn of the 20th century, Tullamaine was the home of Sir Bernard Burke, CB, Ulster King of Arms and author of Burke's Peerage and Keeper of the State Papers of Ireland. It later became the boarding school and kindergarten for Wesley College. Burlington House beside Tullamaine Villa, with its entrance on Burlington Road, had been the home of the Masonic Girls' School from the 1850s to the 1870s.
