William Martin Murphy's palatial home, Dartry Hall, was located in Rathmines, an affluent south Dublin suburb. Its extensive grounds and tropical greenhouses were a stark contrast to the homes of Dublin's working classes.
Murphy was closely associated with the house having lived there since 1883. It features in two cartoons published by the Irish Worker during the Lockout. Both "The Vulture of Dartry Hall" and "William 'Murder' Murphy's Dream of Conquest" depict Murphy as a sinister presence at the gates of his estate with the deceased and injured poor of Dublin at his feet.
Dartry Hall is located in Orwell Woods, Dartry, Dublin 6. It is approximately 15 minutes' drive from the National Library of Ireland.

Dartry Hall underwent extensive conservation and restoration works in 2008 – 2009 and now houses a number of private residential apartments.
