Open House Galway – Salthill Diving Tower – A shared history!

Open House, Galway’s Architectural Festival continues to defy the odds, adapt and grow, to show case the best of our Architectural heritage in Galway City and County.
Now in its’ fifth year, Open House Galway takes its place among the Architectural Festival Family worldwide which includes Chicago, London, Lisbon, Helsinki and Dublin.
Smaller in scale, Féile Ailtireachta na Gaillimhe brings our rich physical environment into the limelight, and reinforces Galway as the cultural capital of Ireland.
Open House allows you to experience great Architecture, both old and new, up close and personal. The Festival affords an insight into many buildings not normally open to the public.

Stewart are once again proud to be associated with Galway’s rich architectural festival and delighted the cycling tour of 50’s Galway stops off at the iconic Diving Tower in Blackrock which was designed by the Festival chairperson’s (Eleanor Ryan) grandfather – E.R. (Rafe) Ryan and built by Jack Stewart!
