Ireland’s National Maritime Museum is situated in the Old Mariners Church at Dún Laoghaire – a seaside town and port located circa 6 miles from Dublin city centre which is easily accessible by DART suburban train and several bus services.

The museum’s greatest artefact is probably the building itself as it is one of a few custom built places of worship for sailors remaining intact in the world to-day. There are interesting mechanical exhibitions, including first class artefacts, on many aspects of the Irish maritime, wildlife around the Irish coastline including fish, birds and small animals, a maritime art gallery, a recreated ship’s radio room and a Titanic exhibition.

The National Maritime Museum houses an extensive collection on all aspects of maritime heritage, from the massive anchor in the museum courtyard to tiny models put together by the lighthouse keepers in the many lonely hours spent on duty off the coast of Ireland. Of the thousands of objects some hundreds are on display in the museum.
