Irish Heritage Trust

The Irish Heritage Trust is an independent charity established in 2006 to serve as Ireland’s national, independent, heritage property organisation. Conservation, education, and sustainability are at the core of our work to care for and share Ireland’s impressive cultural and natural heritage. Immersive exhibitions at the state-of-the-art National Famine Museum and the Irish Agricultural Museum help learners of all ages to deepen their understanding of Ireland’s crisis and recovery.

EU Funding Goals

We would like to build a network to facilitate learning and participation in the areas of global citizenship education, cultural heritage and rural development, climate mitigation and environmental outreach programmes, and famine prevention.


The Irish Heritage Trust exists to benefit the community.

We acquire, manage, develop, operate and/or care for properties, objects, and artefacts of significant heritage and cultural value, particularly when they are at risk.

We work tirelessly to provide for their safekeeping, conservation, and maintenance. We want to ensure that members of the public will be able to enjoy and appreciate them in perpetuity.
