Through an extensive programme of talks, tours and exhibitions, it is our goal this year to highlight the buildings of Dublin that have altered our vision of the city over time, shaped how we live and inspire new ways of living in the future.See more
Open House Dublin Tours
Just Turn Up: The majority of our building tours are on a first come first served basis so just turn up during the listed opening times and join the next available tour.
For a small number of buildings, a booking or lottery system operates due to restricted numbers, security or the sensitive nature of the building. Check the page of the building for details on how to enter or book.
Lottery and pre-booking is now closed.
