Living History Experience

12th September-31st December

Address: Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre, Dalkey, Co. Dublin

From atmospheric tenth-century Church grounds, through the original Townhouse Castle, costumed actors lead an exciting medieval Living History Experience. The Archer demonstrates his Longbow prowess. Be amazed at all the expressions from archery still in use today. Cook shares medieval recipes, including her favourite, roast goose. The Barber Surgeon, after his blood lettings and cures, uses the quill to write out his potions in calligraphy. Wouldn’t you like to see and hear how oak gal ink was made to write on goatskin parchment… our Barber Surgeon is the expert!
