Cork Heritage Open Day is a unique event, which is held on the first Saturday of Heritage Week. In 2015 it was held on Saturday the 22nd of August.
This year 41 buildings opened their doors to the public free of charge and there are also over 100 free themed events happening throughout the day all over the city. These included Medieval Day at Elizabeth Fort, the Coal Quay family festival, children’s events at Fitzgerald Park, a series of walking tours, venue tours, photographic and memorabilia exhibitions, talks, demonstrations, and much, much more. There was something of interest for everyone and a fun and entertaining day was had by all.
This event was greeted with great enthusiasm by building owners and members of the public alike.
We would like to sincerely thank all those, who helped to make Cork Heritage Open Day be as successful as it was, especially the building owners, the event organisers and the volunteers.
The event is organized by Cork City Council as part of Heritage Week in partnership with the Heritage Council and with media sponsorship from Cork's 96 FM and the Evening Echo.
