Local Authority Heritage Officers play a key role in promoting heritage awareness, developing policy and providing advice and information on local as well as national heritage issues.
Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and gives them new life.
Since 1992, the Irish Landmark Trust has been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Their properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, the organisation's primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
Funding from Heritage Council facilitates the Irish Landmark Trust to save, share and sustain buildings that are part of Ireland's built heritage; and by doing so to create awareness, appreciation and understanding of the value of built heritage.
