Hidden Histories Self-Guided Treasure Hunt for Children

September 25, 2021 - October 10, 2021

Presented by Creative Residency @ Richmond Barracks.

As part of Dublin Festival of History, children are invited to take on Hidden Histories Hunt of Dublin! Download the document below, follow the trail and solve the clues to find the name of a long-lost treasure.

The hunt involves a 3km walk from the start point to the finish point and takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete. The questions are suitable for children aged 9-12, but grown-ups will need to help with directions. 

The Hidden Histories Hunt was devised by Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche.

Illustrations and design by John Farrelly.

In 2020, the Creative Residency @ Richmond Barracks appointed Dublin’s first Historian-in-Residence for Children, Dervilia Roche.

The Creative Residency programme is made by Dublin City Council Culture Company.

The Historian-in-Residence for Children Creative Residency @ Richmond Barracks is a partnership with Dublin City Council Culture Company and Dublin City Libraries.
