The Darleys were an important family of stone-cutters, sculptors, builders and architects who were active in Ireland for over two centuries. They had business premises in Newtownards, Co Down, Mercer’s Street Dublin and Dorset Street, Dublin. They produced many of Ireland’s finest Georgian mantelpieces.

The Royal Irish Academy holds a collection of mantelpiece drawings created by George and Hill Darley during the course of their work in Dublin between c.1757-1813. These drawings are considered to be one of the most extensive collections of original late eighteenth-century designs for mantelpieces in Britain or Ireland.
