Description

Each year, hundreds of properties open their doors and many organisations put on events for free across Northern Ireland as part of European Heritage Open Days.

The Open Days take place every year on the second weekend of September. This year, over 300 events will take place on 8 and 9 September.
For the full list of events, please visit www.discovernorthernireland.com.
It's a great opportunity to explore buildings which aren't normally open to the public. Discover our built heritage as these sites and buildings come alive with living history, film screenings, literary events, theatre performances, visual arts and art exhibitions.
The theme for 2018 is The Art of Sharing which presents an opportunity to share our heritage stories through our buildings and their connections to location and people.
