European Heritage Open Days

Each year hundreds of properties open their doors with many organisations hosting free events across Northern Ireland as part of European Heritage Open Days (EHOD).


EHOD usually takes place every year on the second weekend in September. This year EHOD takes place on 14 and 15 September. Choose from a programme of over 300 FREE events suitable for the whole family.

The theme for 2019 EHOD is Arts and Entertainment which presents an opportunity to explore the tangible and intangible elements of heritage of arts and entertainment and learn about their history and architecture.
