Visit 2013 is a weekend event which will see artists’ studios all over Dublin City opening their doors to the public. On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th May, from 12pm-6pm, this free event offers curious art lovers an invitation to visit over 250 artist’s private studios and gain a first hand insight into their work.


In Dublin City, artists’ studios, old and new, exist in a variety of buildings including industrial warehouses and Georgian buildings, converted stables, old Fire Stations, former shop units and tile warehouse factories. These spaces range from those who are celebrating their 30 year anniversary to those who are only a few months old. You might not be aware that the building you walk by every day is in fact a hub of artistic activity. If you have ever been curious about what goes on inside an artist’s studio, Visit 2013 is your chance to find out!


Visit 2013 is a free event and each studio will organise its own programme of events like workshops, talks and performances. Bus, bike and walking tours will also be available. You can get more information at or pick up a handy map at any of the participating studios!
