As part of European Heritage Open Day, Irish Landmark Trust open doors to a selection of our historic properties in Northern Ireland, offering visitors a special opportunity to explore our unique holiday homes. Generally, it is only the overnight guest who experiences the warmth, beauty and cultural significance of our accommodations. However, on Sunday 15th September 2019, reservations for thirteen properties have been put on hold and heritage visitors are invited to walk, roam and observe the impact of restoration on these wonderful examples of our built inheritance.
Open days could not happen without the enthusiasm and commitment of this dedicated team of our Local House Managers.
This style of open days encourages heritage to be a lived experience and welcomes visitors of all ages to engage with the past. This will make a wonderful day trip for families and offers a real chance to explore Irish Landmark properties that you may wish to book for future holidays. One of the greatest joys of a day visit to an Irish Landmark property is the sense of cultural experience it creates in oneself.
This is a ticket free event. Please just leave plenty of time for your visit as some properties can get very busy during the day.
