Event Description

The Museum is housed in Dún Laoghaire’s
180-year-old Mariners’ Church, opposite the dlr
LexIcon. Experienced guides will bring you on a

You will learn about maritime history, exploration,
navigation, radio, deep-sea cable technology,
nature and art inspired by the sea and relevant
