We are pleased to announce the conference for 2014. It will take place at Killarney, Republic of Ireland, from 11-14 September. The themes of the conference are: 50 years of heritage interpretation at Muckross House, the Irish kitchen, and landscape interpretation.
We will be hosted by the Trustees of Muckross House and Traditional Farms (http://www.muckross-house.ie/), who are celebrating their first half century of running this important heritage attraction in the heart of Ireland’s first national park. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to learn about the folk life of this part of Ireland through both a wide range of papers as well as two excursions.
The conference sessions will be held in the Lake Hotel (http://www.lakehotelkillarney.com/), overlooking Lough Leane and close to Muckross House.
