Conserving your Dublin Period House: Spring 2019 - Individual Lectures & Walking Tour
13:00 - 14:00
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 are recognised as CPD by the CIF Register of Heritage Contractors, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute and the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland.
