Richmond Barracks

Richmond Barracks

A new exhibition centre is being developed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Set in the historic Richmond Barracks – within whose walls over 3,000 Irish rebels were held – the interactive, multimedia attraction will trace the story of the site from military barracks to housing estate and from school, to exhibition centre. Through the building’s restoration visitors will be able to experience the centre as a military barracks, a significant site of the 1916 Rising, and as a cornerstone of a Dublin community. Flexible event and exhibition spaces, a digital archive of artefacts relevant to the building’s 200 year history, will come together to provide a space that will enrich the local community and provide an unforgettable experience for visitors to Dublin. The state ceremonial event to open Richmond Barracks will be on May 2nd 2016. Mitchell + Associates were commissioned as the landscape architects for the external realm.
