Walk the walks at Lucan House!
Once again, Lucan Festival provides us with the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Lucan gentry, when on Saturday 9th September, the grounds of Lucan House will be open to the public, courtesy of His Excellency, Giovanni Adorni Braccesi Chiassi, Italian Ambassador to Ireland.
Lucan House 1785 – artist unknown
It is an ideal opportunity to ramble through the grounds up as far as the Bath House and back. View the old tower ruins and burial ground, see the dairy, stable and coach-house buildings, the Sarsfield Monument, and be entertained while taking it easy on the lawns of Lucan House – laid out by the Hon. Agmondisham Vesey himself, back in the 1700s.
This event is the main source of funds for the Festival and is the only event of the Festival not free.
Tickets at €5, (children 12 and under free) - will be on sale in SuperValu outside Kay's Kitchen on Saturday 20th May, and the following Saturday 27th, between 12 noon and 2.30pm. On purchasing a ticket, you will automatically be entered in a draw for 50 people to visit the interior of the great house at a later date.
