Each year, during the last week of August, many national and hundreds of local community organisations participate by organising events throughout the country. Many of the events that take place during the week are free and the programme highlights the abundance of great work that is carried out in all communities in Ireland to preserve and promote our natural, built and cultural heritage. The theme of Heritage Week 2019 is 'Pastimes, Past Times' and you can register your event from May the 1st.

Pastimes | Past Times

The theme of Heritage Week 2019 is Pastimes | Past Times. From 17th to the 25th of August you are encouraged you to take a stroll through history and explore how our free time has evolved in often fascinating ways.

Tell the story from fireside audiences thrilled by ancient epics to online communities bonding over boxsets. Show how traditional crafts are growing in popularity as a new generation discovers the joy of handmaking. Explore hurling’s long journey from Cú Chulainn to Croke Park. Discover how our modern music festivals have nothing on the hedonism of Donnybrook Fair in the 1800’s!

Coordinated by the Heritage Council, National Heritage Week is Ireland’s most popular cultural event and in 2019 half a million people are expected to participate in over 2,200
heritage events. National Heritage Week is part of European Heritage Days which promote Europe’s common cultural heritage
