Wynn's Hotel owes its origin and name to a Ms. Phoebe Wynn who opened a commercial boarding house at No. 33 Lower Abbey Street in 1845. For this enterprise, she chose a house which previously had been the Church of Ireland rectory of the Parish of St. Thomas. It adjoined The Royal Hibernian Academy and was a mere stone’s throw from. Dublin's main thorough-fare then Sackville Street. Nothing else is known of Phoebe Wynn except her ownership of the establishment lasted only seven years.
But the business she had located so well prospered and grew under successive owners who enlarged the premises as the opportunity arose. Before the end of the century Wynn's Hotel already occupied numbers 35, 36, 37, 38, and 39 Lower Abbey Street and had become one of Dublin's most popular hotels. Although Ms. Wynn's association with the business was of short duration, her name lived on through several changes of owners
