Every Tuesday, librarian Brian Ellis, Joe Varley and Philip run the museum’s library and research service, helping people and groups researching relatives or undertaking maritime history projects.
I was able to go back and experience Ireland’s rich maritime history,and view models of famous Irish ships of the bygone age and navigational equipment used and compare it to today’s very advanced technology.

This is a great museum experience in Dublin and even though my family is rarely enthusiastic to visit churches, I highly recommend adding the access to Christ church.
