Onsite Tours  – Book from 28 September

Unfortunately due to Government restrictions put in place on 19 September we will no longer be able to offer onsite indoor building tours. However we will have a limited number of outdoor tours available to pre-book from 28 September and we will be adding to our exciting online programme over the coming days! Your safety is our priority and we have worked hard to reimagine our festival for 2020 to bring you Open House Dublin.

All OHD tours are completely FREE! Booking opens Monday 28 September


Please follow the booking instructions on each event page. This year we will be introducing a no show fee which is applied when visitors do not cancel bookings with us in advance. This will be explained clearly when you book. We made this decision because such small numbers are permitted on tours and our participants and volunteers dedicate their time and expertise free of charge to make Open House happen. We hope that you understand.

Open House Junior

An exciting mix of online workshops and activities will provide entertaining and stimulating experiences for all ages. We will be adding to the Junior programme over the coming week with exciting Minecraft challenges and newly designed Architreks!

Site Specific

This year we are very excited to premier a series of short films celebrating Dublin’s architecture, urban design and city culture. The films will premier online 8 October and will be screened at Meeting House Square 9-11 October
