National Maritime Museum


Free Guided Tour

The Museum is housed in Dún Laoghaire's 186-year- old Mariner's Church.
Our guides will bring you on a voyage of discovery with stories of maritime history, heroism, war and disasters at sea.
See the Bailey Optic, the Royal Navy prisoner's dock and the RMS Leinster exhibits.
Don't miss the newly updated Halpin exhibition which has three strands, the man himself and his uniform, the ship he commanded, the Great Eastern,
and the achievement in laying the first successful trans-Atlantic telegraph cable.
Most of the artefacts in the display are part of "The Halpin Collection", donated by the Halpin family.
While you are here why not try to tie a sailor's knot or take a Pirate-selfie!
