Events Conserving Your Dublin Period House (with Walking Tour)

Back to Events

Tuesday 21 February, 2017


The Irish Georgian Society and Dublin City Council have assembled a team of conservation experts to present a series of talks on the history and significance of Dublin's period houses and practical advice on their conservation. Attendance at the talks will greatly benefit owners of all periods and types of houses, from the modest Edwardian artisan dwelling to the substantial red-bricks of the Victorian suburbs and the fine townhouses of our Georgian city squares, providing an 'A to Z' for their care and conservation. 

Talks, which will commence on Tuesday 21st February 2017 from 1pm to 2pm and continue foe 12 weeks, will take place in the Helen Roe Theatre, RSAI, 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. 

It is possible to attend all, one, or as many of the talks as you wish. The talks are priced at €15, which you may pay for at the door or book in advance for a special reduced price of €125 for all twelve talks. Complementary to the Tuesday talks will be a Saturday morning walking tour, at an additional cost of €15. 

The Conserving your Dublin Period House course is an action of the Dublin City Heritage Plan and fulfils Dublin City Council's conservation policy to provide architectural advice to homeowners. It is also an action of the Irish Georgian Society's Conservation Education Programe. 

The Conservation Education Programme is supported by Irish Heritage Insurance, Merrion Property Group and Heather and John Picerne.
