Our favourite time of year – hooray for Heritage Week!

Our favourite time of year – hooray for Heritage Week!

The last week of August heralds the end of the summer holidays. But don’t be downhearted, because the fabulous annual Heritage Week ensures that the Irish summer always goes out with bang, not a whimper! And this year’s family programme is well worth the wait.

As always, has chosen a family highlight for every single one of Heritage Week’s jam-packed nine days. But don’t take our word for it – their website has a useful search facility which allows you to look for family activities specifically in your local area. is also getting in on the Heritage Week action this year, by offering a FREE DOWNLOAD of our Family Activity Trail Map & Guide for Derrynane House and Beach (Co. Kerry). This is an exclusive offer because our Derrynane trail is not currently available on our website for general download.

Apart from the trail, here are our top – er – nine! (cue music . . . .)

And if all that isn’t enough, August is also the time for the always-fab IFI Family Film Festival (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3), the Ukelele Hooley & Killruddery’s annual Last of the Summer Fling (and lots more listed in our Whats On section).

Then it’s Hello September with Culture Night . . . . .
