Cork Heritage Open Day is a unique event, which is held on the first Saturday of Heritage Week. This year it was held on Saturday the 17th of August.
For one day only, 37 buildings opened their doors free of charge for this special event. Members of the public were allowed to have a glimpse of some of Cork's most fascinating buildings ranging from the Medieval to the Military, the Civic to the Commercial and the Educational to the Ecclesiastical.
This event was greeted with great enthusiasm by building owners and members of the public alike in 2013 with an estimated 10,000 people participating in the day.
Ar feadh lá amháin d’osail 38 foirgneamh a ndoirse saor in aisce don imeacht speisialta seo. Bhí cead ag muintir an phobail éachtaint a fháil ar chuid de na foirgnimh is suimiúla i gCorcaigh, ó fhoirgnimh Meánaoiseacha go foirgnimh Míleata, idir Chathartha agus Tráchtála agus idir Oideachais agus Eaglasta.
Chuir úinéirí foirgneamh agus muintir an phobail araon fáilte roimh an imeacht le díograis mhór, i 2012, le thart ar 10,000 duine ag glacadh páirt i gcaitheamh an lae.
