Open House Dublin Instagram Competition Winner!


Aaaaaannnnnnddd the winner is……

Helen McCormack!

A huge congratulations to Helen who came 1st in our #OpenHouseDublin Instagram competition this year. We had nearly 2,000 entries and some incredible images! A massive thank you to The Marker Hotel Dublin who sponsored the first prize of dinner for two plus a bottle of wine. Hope you enjoy it Helen!

Here’s what our judges Ciarán Ferrie, Ciarán Ferrie Architects, Shane Cotter, Architectural Farm and Derek Kennedy, Dublindaily had to say about the winning image:

‘We were looking for photos that best captured the theme of “The Presence of the Past” and that did so in a visually beautiful and interesting manner. The winning photograph by Helen McCormack was chosen unanimously by the jury as best meeting these criteria. The visual play on transparency and reflection gives a unique perspective of the building and captures the multi-layered historical context.’
