Baggot Streeet, named after Baggotrath, the manor granted to Robert Bagod in the 13th century. Robert Bagod was an Irish judge who was appointed the first Chief Justice of the Irish Common Pleas. He built Baggotrath Castle, which was supposed to be the strongest fortress in Dublin. It was located on present day Baggot Street. Baggotrath Castle was destroyed during the Siege of Dublin in 1649, on the eve of the Battle of Rathmines. The ruins of the castle were left on the site until the early 19th century, when Dublin Corporation demolished it. Believer it or not the Castle is to have stood around present day Searson’s Pub.

1. Trust and Confidence:
1. Potential customers will be discouraged away from businesses that provide no contact address. No matter what type of business you are in, being able to present potential clients with a physical address, at which they can contact you, will help your business build both trust and credibility. Having a Baggot Street address will embrace confidence in your potential clients.
2. SEO Reasons:
If your website has no business address listed, you don’t have much chance of being found on a Google search.
For example, if your business is website design and if a potential customer were to search for ‘website design Dublin’ on Google, your site has little or no chance of appearing in the top pages. Only website design businesses with an address in Dublin will appear in this search. More importantly, your business won’t show up on Google Maps, which is becoming more prominent on the top of Google page for local business searches.
3. Personal Privacy:
Using your home address for your business, as opposed to a Baggot Street address, there are both privacy and security issues, especially if you are listing your home address online.

Having a separate address for your business takes away these privacy and security issues.
