Culture Night at the Irish Wake Museum



Date: Friday 22nd September

Location: The Irish Wake Museum, Cathedral Square, Waterford.


For Culture Night 2023, join us for a unique insight into Ireland’s oldest urban domestic building – which is the home of our newest museum – the Irish Wake Museum.

On this fully guided tour you will learn about the history of the building – what was once a 15th-century Almshouse – while hearing about the trials and tribulations of the building’s occupants through the centuries.

Please note:

We greatly appreciate that the subject matter may be upsetting for some and consideration should be taken to ensure that this is the correct experience for you and your companions.
