(a) I cannot see Charlemont Street here,
(b) I cannot see tram tracks on the roadway,
(c) I cannot see any signs of a tram
BUT
(d) I AM in the right place as that is surely the Eye and Ear Hospital where I can have my eyesight checked by the best people available!

derangedlemur quickly agreed that this is Adelaide Road, and Niall McAuley reminded us of a previous discussion about the mislabelling of this image. It was/is part of a series (some mislabelled) but all largely dated to c.1912....

    That's Adelaide road, nowhere near Harcourt street really.

    I consulted this one in the archive a while back for some reason, but I can't remember why. Stupid brain!

    Aha - it may have been because next to it in the archive is EAS_1784 from 1912: Westland Row? Absolutely not!

    Under EAS_1783 I mentioned this one in a comment: I said: Interesting! EAS_1785 is titled Charlemont Street / Harcourt Street Junction, including a tram, Dublin City, Co. Dublin despite showing Adelaide Road and Hospital. I think that title belongs to 1784 (which is mistakenly titled Westland Row) I suspect that these are all 1912.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] I think you are on the right track ... There is construction behind at the right and distinctive gothic windows. Is this University or Hatch Hall, "founded by the Jesuits in 1913"? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_Hall_(Dublin) See GoogleMapsSatellite with the 3D toggle. Also it's winter - long shadows and no leaves on the trees.

    According to the 25" map, the building just out of sight to the left with glass lamps showing was the 1892 Synagogue, the first purpose-built one in Ireland. archiseek.com/2010/1892-former-synagogue-adelaide-road-du...

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] Good spot! See this streetview for the distinctive churchy windows visible in University Hall under construction here. The DIA tells us it was constructed from 1910-13.

    It looks like the missing West Wing happened just after 1912 too - "Design for addition, 1912, and undated design for proposed new wing, 1912, in IAA, Alan Hope Collection, Acc. 87/127, S 00155; IAA, PKS 0013, 0014, 1234, B21/23, A08 (Nov 1907, Aug 1908), A09 (Jun 1912); IB 49, 30 Nov 1907, 829; 51, 20 Mar 1909, 177; 54, 22 Jun 1912, 379; 55, 19 Jul 1913, 475; 67, 2 May 1925, 325; Freeman's Journal, 22 Aug 1908."

    almost certain that's a telegraph pole over on the right hand side. Not as a joke, it has too many cross members to be only for electrical service. Would fit the period

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/foxglove I had noticed that, I think the photographer caught the sun and used some early photoshopping to dull the very bright spot? I've made a note of it in the tags - and also updated the map, description, etc. Thanks al!

    I think this could possibly be the Royal Victoria Eye & Ear Hospital on Adelaide Road, which runs onto Charlemont St.
