Intro Text 

Our dlr Spring into Heritage/Summer of Heritage was shortlisted this year, 2017 in the category of Supporting Tourism at the Chambers Ireland, Excellence in Local Government Awards.  Although, we did not scoop an award this year, we were delighted to be nominated.

The success that DLR Heritage has built since we first began in 2008 is testament to our marketing activity. The level of engagement and attendance at our heritage events proves that there is a strong appetite for tours around dlr county.

The Spring into Heritage and Summer of Heritage events, are a series of Free guided tours run by the Heritage Office of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. They are suitable for schools, students, families, community groups, active retired, historic groups, and tourists interested in our heritage. They are a great way of informing and educating people about the true historical value of an area, building, or object.

These free guided tours create interest and build excitement by guiding the visitor through a heritage site, uncovering the fascinating history of a place that an audience member may have lived in, or passed by their whole life, yet might not have had the opportunity of entering it before. We have tours to suit everyone, in many locations, including Churches, Burial Grounds, Obelisks, Castles, Museums, Country Houses, Martello Towers, Nature Trails, and a Biosphere tour of Dublin Bay.
