Aungier Street plays host to two of the undoubted highlights of this year’s Open House Dublin programme. On Saturday and Sunday (18 & 19 October) members of City Architects’ Conservation Section will be giving guided walking tours of the area. While, for those who can’t make those tours, 9/9a Aungier Street will be also open to the public both day. Previously overlooked, the Aungier Street area has seen a marked revival of interest in recent years. City Architects have been at the centre of this activity with a report published last year and a host of other activities undertaken elsewhere on the street.
Open House Dublin 2014 takes place this year from the 17th to 19th October. It is the ninth year that the ever popular event will take place in Dublin. The theme for this year is ‘Learning from Building’. The programme map can be found in libraries and other public venues across the city including City hall and Connolly Station. City Architects will again be taking part in Open House this year with a number of new tours part of the programme.
