Family Matters

The first OpenHouse was London in 1992, followed by New York in 2002 and Dublin in 2005. Since then, the OpenHouse family has grown to over 40 cities worldwide with over a million people participating. Whilst being totally independent of each other, all are committed to the same values started back in 1992, of raising awareness of the value of good design amongst local citizens.

Limerick joined the OpenHouse Family in 2012, followed by Cork in 2014. Cork, Dublin and Limerick will be hosting OpenHouse events in succeeding weeks.
