OHD Sunday Route Plan: D8+D2 - Open House Dublin 2024

OHD Sunday Route Plan: D8+D2

OHD route plans are suggested routes for you to take on Open House weekend to experience the city’s architecture. Although most events on these routes are drop-in and do not require booking we advise you to arrive early and to please be aware that some tours may fill up quickly.

On this glorious sunny day (we hope), start your Open House Sunday with some highly recommended walking tours in the city. We have two fantastic drop in options for Sunday morning but you’ll have to choose as they both start at 11am!


The Guinness Legacy in the Liberties tour starts at the Iveagh Markets in Dublin 8 and is led by Kieran Doyle O’Brien.

All Change: Newmarket & Environs, led by Stephen Coyne, starts at Dean St, the Liberties, Dublin 8.

Note: All Change: Newmarket & Environs also takes place Saturday 15th so you can get both in if you want to!

We recommend a lunch break and a rest after your walk before you head into the Shelbourne Hotel for a unique event as part of this year’s Open House, our first ever theatrical performance!

The Battle of Kildare Place is a drama of sibling rivalry and architectural discord by Emma Gilleece and Michael James Ford. Performed by Sinead Murphy and Darina Gallagher and produced by Bewley’s Cafe Theatre.

Places on these tours should be booked in advance due to limited numbers but we do have some places left so get booking! Book a tour now

Meeting point: The Shelbourne Hotel, St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2

Date & Time: Saturday 15th + Sunday 16th. Performances at 1pm and 3pm
