Tourist Information Dublin

National Transport Museum of Ireland, Dublin.

The National Transport Museum of Ireland is based in the grounds of Howth Castle

The Transport Museum Society of Ireland began with an abortive 1949 effort to preserve three Dublin trams. Vandalism and the elements defeated many of the TMSI's pioneering preservation attempts, resulting in the loss of irreplaceable treasures. Totally voluntary, the Society became a limited company in 1971 and is now a registered charity, operating to international museum standards and our own strict preservation code.

Sixty out of the 100 vehicles, dating back to 1883, currently in Howth are on display, and others can be inspected by prior arrangement. The museum features lorries, trucks, fire engines and tractors.
