OPW Heritage Services – caring for the nation’s past

We are responsible for Ireland’s most important heritage sites. Iconic sites ranging from the Rock of Cashel in Tipperary to Skellig Michael on a small island off the Kerry coast, are just some of the stunning 780 heritage sites in our care.

Our team of dedicated experts look after the buildings, landscapes and collections entrusted to us and make them available to over 12 million visitors each year to learn from and enjoy. Every day we work to make Ireland proud of the fabric of its history.
