Open House Dublin is a free festival of architecture with 650+ guided tours, films, exhibitions and events taking place across Dublin city and county each October.
Ireland’s largest architecture festival, Open House Dublin is a county-wide celebration of great architecture, urban design and the people who contribute to the creation of built Dublin. Open House Dublin is a programme of the Irish Architecture Foundation and also part of the Open House Worldwide international network of more than 50 organisations hosting festivals and conversations about architecture, design and cities across the globe from Lagos to Taipei and New York to Santiago.
As such, we are uniquely positioned to take the lead on public engagement, discourse and debate in architecture and city-making in Dublin.
Open House Dublin 2022 marked a return to a rich programme of in-person events engaging 23,000 people over one weekend. We hosted more than 650 tours and events in over 150 locations, from expertly guided tours of historical and contemporary buildings to a full programme of walking tours, exhibitions and activities for young architecture enthusiasts. Another 3,500 viewers watched online content on the Open House Dublin website.
We worked hard to develop our accessibility accommodations to continue to strive towards a festival that centres accessibility and welcomes everyone to experience Open House Dublin.
The invaluable support of our many friends, supporters, building owners, architects, collaborators and volunteers make Open House Dublin possible, and we thank you all for continued passion, generosity and expertise.
