Event description
Open House Limerick welcome audiences to experience King's Island as a story of built heritage in three unique parts.

About this event

King's Island represents the genesis of Limerick city and contains a legacy of architectural built heritage that resonates across the region. Inhabited since 922, the Viking City of Hymrek has 1,000 years of cultural layers interwoven to create a wonderfully rich tableau.

In keeping with OHL Green Festival ethos, we have specially curated a looped walking tour which brings you past over 20 stops featuring works from the 12th to the 20th centuries as selected by local architects and artists for the Open House Limerick 2021 Festival of Architecture.

This event will launch during Open House Limerick Weekend with three outdoor guided walking tours. Two on Saturday 30th and one on Sunday 31st October. Subsequent self guided tours can be taken using the online digital map or a printable map which can be downloaded from the website.

Organiser Open House Limerick

Organiser of King's Island Architectural Walking Tour #3

The popular festival of architecture, Open House Limerick, is celebrating its 10th year in Limerick City and County with the 2021 theme ‘Architecture is Reconnecting’. To reduce the number of large gatherings, the events will be staggered over a number of weeks with initial proceedings commencing during Heritage Week, which runs this year from Saturday August 14th to Sunday August 22nd. The Open House Limerick weekend will run from the 29th - 31st October 2021.

In recognition of the isolation shared over the past 18 months, Open House Limerick 2021 will be reconnecting visitors and participants to their built heritage, local contemporary architecture and shining a spotlight on lesser known well-designed public places in their area. In addition, Open House Limerick will engage with designers and architects to commission a new pavilion as a space of reconnection.

All events, which are free of charge, will either be held outdoors, self-guided or presented online.
