Limerick opens doors to Architecture and Culture.
The doors of some of Limerick’s most intriguing and historic buildings will open to the public for free during OpenHouse Limerick 2014.
The 19th century railway station house at Patrickswell, the new Mortuary Extension at University Hospital Limerick, Ardnacrusha Power Station, Limerick Circuit Courthouse, the Quaker Meeting House at Punches Cross and Sarsfield Barracks are amongst more than 30 buildings scheduled to be opened to the public, some for the first time.
Limerick is a member organisation of the Open House Worldwide Family which also includes London, New York, Helsinki, Melbourne, Slovenia, Barcelona and Dublin.
The medieval Castlegarde building in Cappamore, the new academic block at Glenstal Abbey School, St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Munster Council GAA Headquarters at Castletroy will also be opening to the public as part of this year’s initiative, which is hosted by the OpenHouse Limerick Committee.
As well as featuring tours of more than 30 buildings of all types and periods, OpenHouse Limerick 2014 will also include a bus tour, lectures, exhibitions, walking tours and children’s workshops. Architecture + Culture are the themes of OpenHouse Limerick 2014, tying in with Limerick City of Culture 2014.

Meanwhile, OpenHouse Limerick 2014 is this year running a photography competition on Flickr and Instagram. Organisers are looking for photographs that show how the public engages with, is inspired by and interacts with the buildings featured in this year’s programme. Winners of the OpenPhoto competition will be exhibited and prizes will be provided.
Open House Limerick is NOT an IAF event and is delivered by Open House Limerick for more information please visit this website.
