Summer of Heritage 2014: Tours Of Dún Laoghaire Rathdown

I wrote this piece for the Irish News Review this week after having a tour round Cabinteely House, so I thought I’d re-post this here in case anyone in the Dublin or Dún Laoghaire Rathdown part of Ireland is looking for ideas for day trips. Follow the links to have a browse through the tour list. Enjoy the rest of the summer holiday!

I am firmly into cultural brochure and leaflet mode to ensure that I don’t miss anything in my local area before September. I struck lucky with DLR County Council’s Summer of Heritage brochure. It lists no less than twenty tours you can take during the summer in the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown area. Plenty to keep you occupied during July and August with the bonus that all of the tours are free and all are suitable for children (with extra care needed in some properties). It’s also worth noting that you can take a tour of the Dalkey Castle and Heritage centre for free as part of this Summer Heritage series. These special tours are at 10.45 on Mondays and Thursdays until 4 September. You can browse the site after the tours and if you’ve never been to Dalkey Castle I would recommend this as a great opportunity to see this…
