Free Access To Heritage Sites This Wednesday

The Office of Public Works (OPW) is offering free admission to all heritage sites around Tipperary and Ireland this Wednesday, 3rd August 2011. This offer will be also be available on the first Wednesday of every month during 2011. A full list of all participating sites can be found on heritageireland.ie.

Here is a list of the heritage sites that are free in Tipperary this wednesday;

  • Cahir Castle
  • Rock of Cashel – There will be free parking in Cashel this Wednesday and on the first Wednesday of every month from the Cashel Town Council.
  • Roscrea Heritage (Castle and Damer House) and the Blackmills
  • Swiss Cottage

Other nearby attractions outside of Tipperary include Dunmore Cave, Jerpoint Abbey & Kilkenny Castle (Kilkenny), Adare Castle (Limerick), Clonmacnoise (Offaly), Emo Court (Laois) and Reginald’s Tower (Waterford).

According to the HeritageIreland.ie website visitors may experience delays at some of the busier sites. Access to some sites may be by guided tour only and therefore tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

This will hopefully provide a good boost to our local economy and increase awareness of some of our historic heritage sites.
