About ATI

Architecture Tours Ireland was set up in 2010 to provide informative and engaging walking tours on Ireland’s built environment. We aim to raise public awareness on architecture and excite our audience of its value. We wish to showcase Ireland’s architectural icons and achievements.

Architecture Tours Ireland is a joint initiative between the RIAI (Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland) and the Irish Architecture Foundation. Architecture Tours Ireland is supported by the Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015.



The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland is the support, promotion and regulatory body for architects in Ireland. Since 1839 the RIAI has been committed to upholding the highest standards in architecture and providing impartial and authoritative advice and information on issues affecting architects, the built environment and society.


Irish Architecture Foundation

The Irish Architecture Foundation’s role is to be a vibrant and passionate organisation that excites its audiences about the value of architecture. We are a focal point for the many people and organisations who wish to champion the power of architecture and urban design. Established in 2005, the IAF is all about promoting a better built environment for everyone’s benefit. The IAF has charitable status.
