Richmond Barracks

Children’s History Summer Camp

Join Dublin’s Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche for a three-day summer camp, exploring history through games and crafts.

Learn about different chapters of Dublin’s fascinating history, create your own artworks inspired by some of the subjects, and enjoy fun interactive games in the historic setting of Richmond Barracks.

The summer camp is suitable for children aged 9 - 12 years old. Places are very limited, so advanced booking is advised.

Please note, a ticket for this event covers sessions from 10am - 2pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

All materials for the activities will be provided, but children should bring lunch and a snack. As some activities will take place in the garden of Richmond Barracks, children should bring a jacket and sunscreen if needed.
