Today, visitors can experience walking tours that chart the history of the local area and the building as a military barracks, a significant site of the 1916 Rising, and as a cornerstone of a Dublin community.
Richmond Barracks is now also home to a library, garden, and Culture Connects, a programme of cultural activities that celebrate the experiences and interests of the local communities and people.
Find out how you can get involved by visiting our What's On page.
Coming soon …
We are working with local historians to create a dedicated area on the website that chronicles the many different uses of the building in its long history.
This will include the significant contributions of the local communities to the restoration and conservation of the building, as well as an archive of programmes such as Mondays at the Mess.
These written, audio, and visual materials will allow you to explore and trace 200 years of Kilmainham and Inchicore’s history.
In the meantime, you can view a brief timeline of the history of Richmond Barracks.
