Culture Night

Culture Night Tours include our DoDublin Ghostbus Tour as well as the Women who made history tour to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in Ireland, The Dublin Street Art Tour, Culture Fit Tour and A History of Dublin for Children Tour.

Culture Night features a kaleidoscopic programme of the very best of what is intrinsic in us – creativity, storytelling and our unique culture. Year after year communities and participants from all genres including photographers, illustrators, designers, composers, visual artists, dancers, aerialists, script writers, conductors, graffiti artists, authors, singers and musicians come together on this one night to celebrate our cultural heritage and tell the story of contemporary Irish culture. Highlights in the capital this year include Bank of Ireland Cultural & Heritage Centre where you can enjoy the ‘Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again’ exhibition; visitors to Dublin Airport will have the chance to experience talks on the history of the airport and explore the ‘Creative Journeys’ art installations in partnership with NCAD and Business to Arts; Experience an evening of storytelling and conversation in the beautifully restored 14 Henrietta Street and discover what life was like in this Georgian Townhouse turned tenement dwelling through a taster tour of the newly opened museum; twice Oscar-nominated Brown Bag Films will host family friendly workshops and activities led by their very own Emmy Award-winning Director Marten Jonmark; Taking Flight invites families to take part in aerial movement workshops and later witness a spectacular circus arts performance by the Taking Flight group; and one of the first charitable hospitals in Dublin, Dr Steevens Hospital (1784), is opening its doors on Culture Night to allow visitors a sneak peak at its outstanding Edward Worth Library and their ‘Mystical Creatures’ exhibition.
