  • Didn't manage to go in but the shop had some quaint nautical items and from what I could see from the entrance it looks worth a visit. Well kept for a place apparently ran by volunteers.
  • Just loved my time here! So much to see and done with such caring. The vegan cafe was outstanding⭐️ in fact I ate more than I should have and will go again! My goodness the cakes...
  • Very nice little museum. Former church! Interesting and informative, well worth the visit.
  • Lots to learn about technology in maritime. For example, did you know that metal interference with compass was solved for ships only by Kelvin (Google "Kelvin balls")? Most objects have well written descriptions to them, with great Irish humor. Want to smuggle guns? Graphics shows how Irish did it several times in 1910s. make sure to learn how to rescue people in the sea without swimming in hi tech way before drones. Also, small cafe right inside was very helpful to take a break.
  • Very interesting stuff. The interactive exhibits need more TLC
