National Transport Museum of Ireland
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.
Sixty out of the 100 vehicles currently in Howth are on display, and others can be inspected by prior arrangement. The oldest items date from 1883 and the newest 1984.
Howth isn’t just rich in maritime history, The National Transport Museum strives to collect and preserve the vehicles that we no longer regard with such appreciation as we once did.
