This autumn, Open House Dublin, Ireland’s largest architecture festival, will be a city-wide celebration.

Join us for over 100+ free events across the city. Open House Dublin celebrates great architecture, urban design and the people that contribute to the creation of built Dublin.

Brought to you by the Irish Architecture Foundation, the festival is part of the Open House Worldwide international network of 50 organisations hosting festivals and conversations about architecture, design and cities across the globe from Lagos to Taipei, and New York to Santiago. We are uniquely positioned to take the lead on public engagement, discourse and debate in architecture and city-making in Dublin. The invaluable support of our many friends, supporters, building owners, architects, collaborators, experts, and volunteers whose passion and generosity are essential in realising this opportunity. .

Supporting the cultural recovery with engaging events in Dublin, Open House Dublin will return this October with another hybrid festival focused on the recovery of Dublin. Through our rich programme of over 100 tours and events over three days, the festival will safely facilitate the reopening of culture and architecture across the city of Dublin. While celebrating the return of onsite guided tours as well as outdoor walking, cycling and boat tours, we will also feature new online tours of residential projects with our most talented architects, two brand new digital urban cycling tours and the premiere of Season 2 of our Site Specific short documentaries!

Spaces on tours will respect public health measures in place at the time so make sure to book your spot. Bookings will go live on 28 September at 12pm.

Sign up to our newsletter for up to date programme information and reminders about booking places. Remember all our tours and events are FREE of charge.

Open House Dublin is made possible by the generous support of our partners, sponsors, and corporate circle supporters; a community of architects, businesses, industry leaders, and policy-makers who believe in a more diverse and sustainable city. With their support, we are able to create and grow the festival programme, and keep our activities free and accessible to our audiences.
