OPEN HOUSE TOUR – THE FOLLIES OF ST ENDA’S PARK
In addition to Open House tours of the Pearse Museum , we will be offering guided tours of St. Enda’s Park’s very significant collection of late 18th to early 19th century follies at 12pm and 3pm on Saturday and Sunday, 14th and 15th of October. Many of the follies were inspired by ancient Irish field monuments and include an Ogham stone, Dolmen and faux ecclesiastical ruins. There is also a Hermit’s cave and a lodge built as a miniature five-pointed star-shaped fort. Those on the tour will be allowed access to the interior rooms of the Fort. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather.
First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather. The Follies Tour goes along a steep forest trail.
Location: Pearse Museum, St. Enda’s Park, Grange Road, Rathfarnham, Dublin 16
