Culture Night

The RIAI participates in Culture Night every September. Culture Night at the RIAI is a great opportunity to see award-winning architecture with our special exhibition and films showcasing the winners of the annual RIAI Architecture Awards. It is also an unmissable occasion to experience our beautiful Georgian townhouse. No 8 Merrion Square was built between 1763 and 1765 by the carpenter Robert Price and the bricklayer John Wilson on lands leased from the Viscount Fitzwilliam on a 99-year lease. The house is a typical Georgian three-bay, four-storey over basement brick building with entrance and staircase halls to one side and a three-bay reception room to the front of the first floor.  The RIAI Bookshop - Ireland's largest bookshop for architecture and design books - is also open after hours during Culture Night.
