Our new website is the perfect opportunity to launch a blog which will allow us to share with you the many stories from the Castle. We hope that you will enjoy the behind-the-scenes look at what we do across a wide range of departments.

The diversity of our activities in Dublin Castle means there is never a dull moment and you will be able to hear exciting news and discover interesting aspects of our museum here first. Members of different teams will take turns in sharing with you an intriguing piece of their work, and in this way you will gain insight into the many different areas in which we work, from our guiding team to our education department, from collections care to conservation and research, and over to a rich and changing programme of exhibitions and events.

Just as the Castle has changed over the centuries and has, in turn, served as the backdrop to changes in Ireland, so the critical and creative engagements with its past continue to grow and to shape our interpretation and presentation of the site. Each post will aim to explore a different facet, from objects in our collection and the people who made them, to the history of this monument with its myriad nooks and crannies which hold secrets of their own, waiting to be uncovered.

We hope that you will find the content in our blog to be insightful and engaging. Each time a new post is up, we will let you know about it via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, so follow us on social media to discover the latest news and information about what’s going on in Dublin Castle.
