Cork Heritage Open Day sees 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 open their doors free of charge for one day only. Cork’s Built Heritage tells the tale of wars and peace, learning and praying, high living and humble beginnings.

You are more than welcome to visit buildings of interest individually, or why not make up your own route, it’s all part of the fun of getting to know this beautiful city better! We are delighted to present a packed programme so as to get the most out of the day, why not select 4 or 5 buildings or events and enjoy strolling around the city at your own pace!
