OPW Minister Brian Hayes recently announced the continuation of the OPW ‘Free Day’. This means that on the first Wednesday of every month this year access to OPW heritage sites across Ireland is free.
Sites such as Newgrange, Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin Castle and Kilkenny Castle will offer free admission on these days, and in some cases free guided tours, for the duration of their season in 2012.
