We all fancy a snoop around other people’s homes, and this weekend you can do just that at Open House Dublin. Organised by the Irish Architecture Foundation, it runs from October 4-6 and will showcase 100 great buildings, from ?the obvious to to the overlooked?.

All sorts of places will be opening their doors – from familiar spots like the GPO and Earlsfort Terrace to quirkier venues, like the Donnybrook bus garage and even the Department of Finance. Better yet, it’s all completely free.

In most cases, the tour will be led by an architect who worked on the design or someone very familiar with the building, giving you plenty of opportunities to ask questions. When embarking on your tour, we highly recommend slotting in time to discover buildings close to ones that initially interested you – the guides at each stop will be able to direct you to nearby gems. Here are some of our top picks.
