Open House Dublin (OHD) is Ireland’s largest architecture festival, inviting all citizens to explore their city. It works through a simple but powerful idea: showcasing outstanding architecture for everyone to experience. Buildings that aren’t usually accessible to the public and buildings of architectural merit open their doors for one weekend, with architectural tours provided by expert guides.

All OHD tours are completely FREE!

Photo Competition

As ever we’re running our popular Photo Competition on Instagram. We're looking for creative representations of how the buildings of Dublin play an active and passive role in the theatre of life.
