Belvedere House is a historic townhouse located on Great Denmark Street facing down North Great George's Street in Dublin, Ireland. It was built by George Rochfort, 2nd Earl of Belvedere in 1775 at a cost of £24,000. The design and stucco of the interior ceilings was carried out by Michael Stapleton, a leading stuccodor and craftsman of his time. In 1841 it became a Jesuit college which houses the school Belvedere College.

It is allegedly haunted by the ghost of Rochfort's mother, Mary Molesworth, 1st Lady of Belvedere, who died there.

Belvedere House is located near the Garden of Remembrance and James Joyce Centre.
