  • Some cool stories Michael told us. If you're in Howth you have to come up and spend some time surrounded by this great memorabilia and think of past events 
  • Very interesting history of the building and unique and interesting radios. He even played an old record for us. Worth the visit. 
  • This place is a treasure trove of interesting and beautiful communication devices in mint condition, with some even still working. When we arrived Mick, our guide, refused to take payment until after ...  more »

  • 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!
  • This place is awesome. If you have an interest in radios or history of communication, this place will be right up your alley. Ask for a guided tour from one of the knowledgeable gentlemen running the place, which includes some fun tidbits and demonstrations on vintage radios, record players and more. 100% worth the 5€ admission (although this is more of an adult attraction - the kids will probably get a little bored)!
  • Because it houses wonderful heritage items from radio and history, and a working amateur radio station too!
  • Beautiful view of the harbour from there!
  • Great Views from the hill
