CONSERVING YOUR DUBLIN PERIOD HOUSE 2021
The Irish Georgian Society and Dublin City Council have assembled a team of conservation experts to present a series of talks on the history and significance of Dublin’s period houses and practical advice on their conservation.
Attendance at the talks will greatly benefit owners of all periods and types of houses, from the modest Edwardian artisan dwelling to the substantial red-bricks of the Victorian suburbs and the fine townhouses of our Georgian city squares, providing an ‘A to Z’ for their care and conservation.
The talks will be of particular interest to owners of houses listed as Protected Structures or located within Architectural Conservation Areas. These talks will also benefit building professionals and practitioners and are approved for CPD by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute and the Heritage Contractors.
It is possible to book talks individually ( €15 each) or book for the whole course for a discounted rate (€125).
Lecture subscribers will be sent a Zoom link to the pre-recorded lecture at 1pm each Tuesday, which is available to watch for seven days from issue. After seven days the talk link will expire and cannot be reissued.
