Event Information

The Irish Georgian Society & 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 also benefit building professionals and practitioners responsible for the conservation, restoration, retrofitting or extension of historic houses.

The talks are recognized as structured CPD by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute, and the CIF Register of Heritage Contractors.

The talks will provide an introduction to the history and significance of Dublin’s domestic architecture and practical advice on its conservation. Each week a one-hour talk will focus on key topics to include: built heritage planning legislation and policy; insurance; energy efficiency; preventative maintenance; damp; disaster prevention and preparedness; as well as the history and significance of architectural ironwork, joinery (windows, doors & staircases), bricks, pointing, roofs, lime and decorative plasterwork. All lecturers are recognized historic building authorities, many of whom are the authors of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage’s conservation Advice Series.

It is possible to book talks individually (€15 each) or book for the whole course for a discounted rate (€140).

Subscribers will be able to attend talks in person at the IGS's City Assembly House or online live through Zoom. All talk subscribers will receive a recording of the talk to watch at their convenience. The recording of each talk is accessible for two weeks after issue.

There will be an opportunity at the end of each talk to ask conservation questions. Those watching the talk live online can submit their questions through the Zoom Q&A function.
