Do tourists sites in Ireland have special entrance fees for disabled people ?

When touring in France, most sites we wanted to visit had free entrance fees for disabled guests and the person taking care of them. Is there something similar in Ireland ?

Checking the Heritage Ireland website, it says 'We offer free entry for those with disabilities and their accompanying carers at all of our sites where an admission charge applies.'

This just applies to the sites they run (list here) , so you would have to check out privately owned sites. Kylemore Abbey and Gardens for example, "offer a discounted rate to wheelchair users, disabled person and their Carers to reflect the limitations of the visit". Powerscourt Gardens say "Carers travelling with people with disabilities are entitled to free entrance to the Gardens." but don't make any mention whether the disabled guest has to pay...

Oh thank you. That is excellent information. I thought I had looked on the site. Must have missed it. Thanks. That is so helpful.
