Heritage Sites in Dublin - New Family 'Passport' Scheme!
St Patrick’s Cathedral recently launched a new scheme called 'Passport to Family Learning' which allows FREE entry to a number of heritage sites around Dublin this summer. The Passport comes in the form of a small booklet (which looks like a passport only friendlier!) The idea is simple, families pick up a copy of the Passport at the Cathedral and when they visit one of the participating sites they get their passport stamped. The challenge is try and collect all the stamps from the eight different sites over the course of this summer. The scheme offers a great solution to families who are looking for activities which are fun, educational and free!
Other sites free to visit as part of the sheme are the Chester Beatty Library, the National Print Museum, Rathfarnham Castle, St Audeon's Church, Marsh's Library, Castletown House and Dublin Castle. Only a 1,000 passports are available for use this summer and they can be picked up at the Cathedral or through the office by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope to:
St Patrick's Cathedral,
St Patrick's Close,
