It was a really pleasant visit to museum and the 737-800 simulator! We came in with my girlfriend for a daytrip on a weekend holiday in Dublin.

It's a great museum for all avation lovers at any age! The 737-800NG simulator is just like the real thing (except the hydraulic movement)! Great place to visit yourself or with friend and family! Great fun!

In the summer camp we went to the Air Traffic Control tower in Shannon airport and we went to the control center in Ballycasey.... More

My two boys gave me a voucher for a flight simulator experience for my birthday. I had to ring up for a booking date and time. So here I was in the centre, greeted at the door and brought into a room upstairs to get briefed about the aircraft they use for the simulation. A Boeing 737-800NG. I was shown... More

The visit began with a very interesting introduction by Jane about... More
