Culture Night is taking place across the country.
The annual event celebrates culture, creativity and the arts in Ireland.
In Dublin, 80% of the events will be in-person - including dance performances, a retelling of Gulliver's Travels and an exhibition on the untold history of Ireland's LGBTQ+ diaspora.
There will be 300 free in-person and online events taking place at 240 venues across the city and county.
Museums, galleries and cultural heritage sites will open their doors and welcome visitors from 4.00pm until late.
There will still be some online events - the European Commission and Language Connect are hosting a series of language classes online.
Cork will also host a hybrid mix of in-venue, outdoor and online events - with Fitzgerald's Park being the focal point of this year's celebrations.
Culture Night ambassador, Ola Majekodunmi, told Newstalk Breakfast there will be something for everyone.
"80% of our events is going to be offline - so we're really happy with that, because last year all our events were online.
"But there's a great mix; so for people that maybe want to stay at home, maybe they can see some things online.
"And for people that want to be inside, there's events inside and outside as well."
And Ola says it is good to be back: "It's great, it's really great - it's been a great journey as well."
Dublin Bus is also providing some free transport, with free buses departing every 20 minutes at different locations.
Starting at College Green, Aston Quay and Bachelor’s Walk the free shuttle services will bring visitors to and from cultural quarters.
