Run by the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) and taking place from October 13-15, OPEN HOUSE DUBLIN is Ireland’s largest architectural event.
OPEN HOUSE DUBLIN is a free annual celebration of the city’s best architecture, when buildings of all types and periods open their doors to allow citizens and visitors to explore.
The theme for 2017’s event is The City as a Stage. Dublin and its architecture has been the backdrop to the daily dramas of everyday life for centuries, and this year’s programme explores how its citizens have made their mark on the city and investigates the architects, artisans and thinkers that influenced its design, construction and development, past and present.
This year’s massive OPEN HOUSE DUBLIN programme features over 100 building tours. There are also 50 other events in Open House Junior – a series of creative events for young people, from toddlers to teenagers, full of fun ways to explore the city and its buildings- and Open House Plus – exhibitions, walking tours and other events.
Most building tours are open on a first-come, first-served basis. A small number of building tours were available to book on a lottery basis; lotteries are now closed.
