What you'll do

To begin with, you will enjoy a tour with one of our guides. Here you will be brought on a journey of discovery through the history of the printed word. Along the tour there will be an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and print your own letterpress keepsake. At the end of the tour, you will be presented with another special keepsake that our printers have prepared for you! And then you will enjoy tea/coffee and a tasty treat in the very popular Press Cafe at the National Print Museum. One of the highlights of the tour is discovering the fascinating story behind the printing of Ireland's most historic document...the Irish Proclamation of 1916. We have an original copy and the type of machine used to print it - the only working machine of its kind in Ireland.
