  • Museum well worth visiting for all age groups. Had a fab tour of the museum from a volunteer guide, who was very informative. Learnt a lot about my own city! 
  • My daughter got arrived on Friday 17th June. An amazing venue and the people there are just wonderful and so helpful. Thank you for doing an amazing job in such a beautiful place. Everyone is talking about it. We will visit again soon.
  • Awesome. Totally worth the visit if you're in Dun Laoghaire. Adults and kids alike love it. Worth a couple of hours.
  • Stunning building containing very detailed history of local and national maritime heritage.
  • Very nice museum. It's small (takes around an hour), but cheap and really worth visiting.
  • A brilliant exhibition and something different to see for anyone visiting Dublin or Dun Laoghaire. Some amazing stories about bravery to be experienced and shipwreck experiences. The exhibition is in a beautiful old church which brings a solemn 'air' to the place but it has something for everyone and I am told they constantly update it. The museum is also close to the beautiful and well renowned East-pier in Dun Laoghaire where you can go for a lovely walk before or after your visit. I'd strongly recommend it as a place to go to if visiting Dublin
