The Irish Architecture Foundation has been connecting people to architecture for fifteen years because we believe empowering people with knowledge about the impact of good design will ensure our built environment always improves and becomes a liveable and vibrant place now and in the future. Open House Dublin is our flagship event. It is a festival that celebrates great architecture and urban design and the people that contribute to the creation of built Dublin.

Open House Dublin is made possible by the generous support of our funders, partners, sponsors and corporate circle. The IAF is principally funded by the Arts Council and further funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and the OPW, which enables us to deliver projects like Open House Dublin.

Open House Dublin is part of the Open House Worldwide Family. We are connected to 48 sibling cities, who collectively have become a charged global force for public engagement in architecture.
