Irish Landmark Trust Celebrates European Heritage Open Days 2022

European Heritage Open Days is an annual event celebrating local architecture, history and culture across Europe. Irish Landmark Trust will be celebrating European Heritage Open Days 2022 with a number of open House events at our properties in Northern Ireland.


Date: Sunday 11th September 2022

Time: 10-4pm

Admission: Free

Please note you do not need to book these events.


The 2022 theme “Sustainable Heritage: Learn Use Enjoy” encourages us to consider the environment and its impact on our heritage, how we conserve our built and cultural heritage to develop a more sustainable future. It also provokes us to value the natural world and landscapes around us, climate change impacts every part of our lives and we all have a responsibility.

We look forward to seeing you at your local landmark on Sunday!
