Welcome to the Summer-Autumn 2019 edition of the Heritage Ireland ezine! Summer and the busy season are in full swing at our wonderful heritage sites.

Naturally it has been an eventful time for us getting ready for visitor season and of course we have the perennial favourites such as the Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny Castle, Kilmainham Gaol and Dublin Castle all looking magnificent but even more exciting are those sites where we have new offerings such as at Emo Court and Doneraile Court. In addition, our continued involvement with local communities means that we are now in a position to offer public access to Dysert Oengusa Round Tower through our partnership with Croom Community Development, while Carlingford Lough Heritage Trust will facilitate tours of King John’s Castle, Carlingford.

We like to express the hope that all our readers enjoy this small taste of what we have to offer right around the country. We’d love to see you at some of our wonderful properties and we encourage you to come and visit us.
