  • Irish Military War Museum

For a real sense of war visit the Irish Military War Museum, Ireland’s largest private military collective housed in a 5,000 sq ft ‘hands on’ museum.  WW1 and WW2 trenches and vehicles, original decommissioned weapons and equipment.  This is a fantastic educational and historical resource for people of all ages and from right across the island of Ireland and beyond.  The Museum also houses one of the finest collections of WW2 Allied and Axis vehicles and all deactivated weapons ever assembled in Ireland. Family friendly park with petting farm, playground and assault course.

Museum Tours

Take Time Wandering or Join a Guided Tour

This is not history behind a glass wall. Walk among our exhibits. We encourage you to pick up the weapons and feel what they were like to handle. See re-creations of World War I trenches or the largest collection of uniforms of the times and listen to our guides tell stories that make history come alive.

Make History Come Alive For Your Students

A visit to the Irish Military War Museum is a true interactive hands-on experience. Students will have the opportunity to tour the museum with a guide, handle original weapons and equipment, visit a replica World War I trench, watch a blank-firing weapon’s display with period weapons, and maybe even ride in a tank! Tours and expert talks can be tailored for individual schools because, at the end of the day, you know your students best! Tours must be pre-booked. Deposit required.
