Our Properties

We manage and care for Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens, Johnstown Castle Estate & Gardens, and Strokestown Park House & Gardens, as well as the National Famine Museum, the Irish Agricultural Museum and thanks to the generosity of Fingal County Council, we are thrilled to be establishing a significant cultural hub at No.11 Parnell Square East, Dublin 1 (the headquarters of the Irish Heritage Trust) which will be used by a wide variety of educational, arts, cultural and heritage organisations. This involves exciting plans to create ‘The Poetry Ireland Centre’ as well as a shared heritage space, in a historic building that can be enjoyed by the public for generations to come. All of these enchanting properties are managed on behalf of the community on a non-profit basis.

Corporate Giving is all about sustainability. Predictable and reliable philanthropic support enables the Irish Heritage Trust to plan and undertake hugely impactful projects which would not otherwise happen.
