After a multimillion-euro renovation, a jewel has returned to the crown of Dublin’s cultural institutes, shining brighter than before.

The Goethe-Institut’s renovation and expansion in its Georgian townhouse raises the bar for historic renovations in Dublin. Now it wants to spark a renaissance in thinking about cultural politics in Europe’s age of anxiety.

This comes at a welcome and timely juncture for Ireland as, looking beyond Brexit, it opens new cultural windows towards Germany.
