An architectural exploration of the north city, from its eighteenth century origins to the various twentieth century interventions. The walk will be led by Merlo Kelly, architect and author of ‘An Introduction to the Architectural Heritage of Dublin North City’. It will begin at the Hugh Lane Gallery on Parnell Square, and follow a route via O’Connell Street and North Great George’s Street to Mountjoy Square. With the help of maps and archival images, the walk is intended to trace the various phases of urban development, and enrich an understanding of the city as we know it today.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers.

Location: Meet outside the entrance to the Hugh Lane Gallery, Parnell Square North, Dublin 1
