Richmond Barracks will reopen to the public on Monday 6th July 2020 in line with Government guidelines and under new health and safety protocols.
We would like to reassure you that we have been working hard to prepare for your safe return. We will be operating in line with Government guidelines and under strict health and safety protocols.
To ensure that social distancing and public health guidelines can be adhered to at all times we are reducing the capacity of people on our tours and in our buildings. Hand sanitiser stations will be available and there will be visible messages reinforcing social distancing, hand-hygiene, and coughing/sneezing etiquette. All Dublin City Council Culture Company personnel will have relevant health and safety training.
Richmond Barracks and gardens will reopen on Monday 6 July in a phased approach, opening 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm. The initial daily programme of events will include the historical tour of Richmond Barracks and a newly launched Richmond Barracks to Kilmainham Walking Tour and we will be hosting creative workshops on site in the coming weeks. The onsite cafe (operated by The Caterers) and rehoused Inchicore library (operated by Dublin City Libraries) will be reopening shortly, with more activities that can be enjoyed at a suitable social distance planned for the coming weeks too.
We advise all visitors to book tour tickets in advance via our website or phone-line and please note only card transactions will be facilitated on site.
Before booking a tour ticket, please check that you are adhering to current Government travel restrictions.
Our visitor and staff safety is paramount, and we ask you to kindly comply with our new health and safety measures during your visit.
We are delighted to re-open our doors and welcome you back to Richmond Barracks.
