Irish Period Houses - The Definitive Reference Manual
Dublin Civic Trust's flagship publication Irish Period Houses - A Conservation Guidance Manual is the must-have reference tool for building conservation in Ireland.
Newly rewritten and published for 2016 by the original author, chartered conservation surveyor Frank Keohane, Irish Period Houses provides invaluable information for the homeowner and building professional into the design of traditional houses, their construction materials and decorative elements, and expert guidance on how they can be repaired and enhanced with best conservation practice. It is the definitive reference guide for custodians of most period buildings in Ireland and for anyone considering taking on a building conservation project.
Enjoy free expert walking tours of Dublin’s five main Georgian squares and associated parks and gardens in this annual staple event. Discover the history of these magnificent urban gardens, their plants and wildlife, the people who once used them and the historic buildings that embrace them.
All events are free
