Open House Dublin, the city’s weekend celebration of architecture organised by the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF)

The Margaret Aylward Centre is listed in the “10 best properties to visit.”

“It’s not every day you head off to explore the architecture of an Irish convent, but the Holy Faith Sisters have opened their Margaret Aylward Centre overlooking the Botanic Gardens and the Tolka River in Glasnevin this weekend.

Designed by MOLA Architecture, the centre includes a theatre, a sacred space, and a series of office rooms which are interlinked with ramps and steps. The building’s exterior is made of opaque glass panels to reflect the surrounding trees, sky, lawn and buildings.

The Centre, which opened in 2014, is used by local community groups throughout the year and the Order hopes to encourage inter-faith dialogue through the facility.”
