  • A small place full of history and items related with communications, specially radio and TV. The best is the explanations from the guide, owner and friends. Highly recommended to visit:)  more »
  • This wonderful collection is an 'homage' to all foms of communication throughout the past 150 years or more. It is lovingly presented in a 19th century Martello tower which itself has a radio- related...  more »
  • This museum is a must for anyone interested in the history of radio. There are some very novel radios and record players here that you probably will not see elsewhere. Knowledgeable and friendly tour ...  more »

  • A great, eccentric, little museum. Lots of wonderful artifacts and curiosities. Inside can be a little cramped depending on how many people are inside but it's well worth a visit. The staff there are very friendly and lovely to chat with. There's also a nice view of Howth Pier outside. Be aware the museum is up on a hill which some may find steep and to watch your head entering!
  • Brilliant. A great tour,and lots of history. Well worth a visit!
  • Had a wonderful trip here last Summer and met an enthusiastic and knowledgeable curator.
  • A hidden gem and Aladdin's Cave. Full of memorabilia from the history of telecommunications.
  • Almost certain to be the most eccentric delight of any visit to greater Dublin, this museum -- one man's obsession with wireless (and telegraph wire) communication since Marconi -- is well worth a stop if you've taken the train to Howth to walk the cliffs and sample the delicious seafood. You're guaranteed a personal tour of the antique radios, TVs, testing and transmitting gear, neon signs and the like, a tour given by the collector himself or his son. Don't miss it!
