One night of entertainment, art and cultural events in historic venues

Everyone’s getting involved with Culture Night, one of the most eagerly anticipated nights of the year. Across Ireland’s Ancient East, arts and cultural organisations open their doors until late, with hundreds of free events, tours, talks and performances for you, your family and friends to enjoy.

From 5pm-11pm, come together to enjoy the magnificent creations our culture communities have to offer.

1400+ Venues 3000+ Free Events in 40+ Locations

The annual event will take place this year on Friday the 16th of September.

Museums, galleries, churches and buildings in Carlow, Kilkenny and around the country will open their doors to the public and host free tours, performances, workshops and demonstrations.

Events held as part of the Culture Night programme are typically free and run between 5pm and 11pm, allowing locals the opportunity to sometimes see behind the doors and scenes of cultural institutions, buildings, and venues that they may never otherwise experience.

When local events are merged into the national pool, today should see the announcement of some 3,000 or more events taking place right across Ireland on 16 September.
