Visit Tipperary OPW Heritage Sites For Free

Queen Elizabeth - Welcome To Your Home County

Queen Elizabeth visited the Rock of Cashel in May 2011.

The Office of Public Works (OPW) are pleased to announce that on the first Wednesday of every month, during 2013, all OPW managed Heritage Sites in Tipperary will continue to offer FREE ADMISSION to individuals wishing to visit these sites for the duration of their particular opening season.

The list of participating sites in Tipperary are: Cahir Castle, Rock of Cashel, Roscrea Heritage (Castle and Damer House) and the Blackmills, and the Swiss Cottage.

Details on these and other national Irish tourist attractions can be found by simply clicking HERE

Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis with normal conditions of admission applying at all sites. Visitors may experience delays at some of the busier sites and are therefore advised to arrive early. If allocated a time, visitors are asked to arrive promptly for the start of their tour. There is no guarantee that visitors who miss their allocated tour-slot can be accommodated at a later time. Children must be supervised at all times and access to some sites will be by guided tour only. Visitors are also warned that opening times can change at short notice.

So please, old age pensioners & those enjoying free travel, do take advantage and use this opportunity “To see old Ireland free.”
