Home » UK » Dublin museum to receive accreditation accolade


A museum in Dublin has joined five others across the country in being awarded with accreditation from the Heritage Council, as part of a programme designed to raise minimum standards in the sector.

The Old Library Trinity College Dublin, the largest library in Ireland, was up for the accolade alongside the likes of the Pearse Museum OPW in St Enda’s Park, Rathfarnham on the outskirts of the Irish capital and Castetown House OPW in Co Kildare, also located near Dublin.

Awarded under the Museums Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI), the scheme is now embraced by bodies across Ireland’s cultural landscape, from national institutions to small, volunteer-led organisations. The accreditations were presented at a ceremony in the Architectural Archive in Dublin on Wednesday.

A fascinating range of museums and galleries is one of the hallmarks of the Irish capital, which is amongst the most popular cities in the world. Come and see for yourself whilst enjoying a break in one of the delightful Dublin hotels.
