Visit the historic and architecturally renowned Blue Coat School to see this beautiful building and grounds and hear about its context within Dublin 7. This year the original edifice will be contrasted with more modern developments on the Blackhall Place site. Imagine the vision, sadly not implemented, of architect Thomas Ivory and discover how the building has been adapted to modern day needs, while at the same time maintaining its intrinsic character.
Guided tours of the outside of the building will take place at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm. Unfortunately due to an event taking place at Blackhall Place on 23 September there will be no guided tours of the inside of the building.
The schedule for this event has been amended since the publication of the Culture Night Dublin brochure and the most up-to-date information is reflected here.
