Eadaoin worked tirelessly on the Richmond Barracks restoration project since 2012 to ensure it remained a huge significance in Ireland’s national history.

She loves travel, culture and is a complete rugby fanatic. She is currently studying broadcasting , so beware if you come in to visit you could be hijacked into recording a podcast!

She also drinks her coffee from a “Little Miss Socialist” mug, need we say any more…?

Bernie Tynan, Reception, Tour Guide & Resident Musician

Bernie Tynan, Resident Musician

Bernie is a local resident and exceptional musician and singer.

She continues to amaze us as to how she can bring visitors to tears on the “Melodies & Memories” music tours along with her friend Tony Casey.

Unlike her colleague Niall, she loves technology and all things social. She is a dedicated fan of Jack Daniels and according to herself she has no brain to mouth filter.

Although she has hung up her tour guide badge, she still continues her musical tours here on the last saturday of the month. When she is not here, she can be found singing beautiful ballads in bars the length and breadth of the country.
