Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir is a national celebration of culture, creativity and the arts, delivered nationwide in cities, towns, villages and rural locations. Doors are opened late and special and unique events are specifically programmed at participating locations free of charge. At Kerry County Museum, we are also using this wonderful evening to mark our 30th anniversary – and we would love for you to celebrate with us.

Our Culture Night event programme sees the return of the popular medieval living history group Tralee Medieval Society who will demonstrate what life was like in Medieval Tralee 500 years ago. Museum curator Helen O’Carroll will give a talk about the Ashe Memorial Hall at 7.15pm followed by a guided tour of the building. You might want to view the Rose dresses on display in the Gowns of Glory exhibition before they go into storage again until next summer or simply take the opportunity to chat with us about the different projects we are working on.

We are also delighted to mark Culture Night and our 30th anniversary by launching and highlighting a number of creative community projects: From creative music videos to young people’s powerful reflections on home and homelessness to oral history and heritage projects going on in our local community right now – we would love to share all this with you on Culture Night.
