Heritage Ireland

What counts as a community event?

If your event

  • needs very little or no equipment
  • takes place on one or two days
  • is organised by a non-profit organisation
  • benefits the community

then it qualifies as a community event.

Hold a community event at one of our locations.

We are currently receiving an increased number of applications to hold events so we kindly ask that you give at least two weeks’ notice for any prospective event requests.
