Museums in Ireland

Kilgarvan Motor Museum

This is a family owned museum. "At Kilgarvan the enthusiast can see the cars from all angles as our cars are not roped off. You can look into them, get the smell of the old leather and wood. If you are interested in any of the engines we will show them to you. Most of the cars on show are used during the year for rallies, shows etc., so these old cars have a nice lived-in feel to them."

National Museum of Transport

The Transport Museum Society of Ireland began with an abortive 1949 effort to preserve three Dublin trams. Totally voluntary, the Society became a limited company in 1971 and is now a registered charity, operating to international museum standards. The museum is located in the Heritage Depot, Howth Demesne, Howth, Ireland. On 1st September 2001, the collection, increasing at an annual average rate of five, totalled 170 (average age 46 years). Sixty out of the 100 vehicles currently in Howth are on display, and others can be inspected by prior arrangement.
