PLEASE NOTE; WITH REGRET, AS OUR NEW TOILETS ARE BEING INSTALLED AT THE MOMENT, THE MUSEUM WILL BE CLOSED AGAIN TO VISITORS THIS WEEKEND, THE 20th and 21ST JULY. WE HAD HOPED THAT THE WORK WOULD HAVE BEEN FINISHED, BUT WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT IT WILL RUN INTO NEXT WEEK.

WE HAVE BEEN ASSURED THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO OPEN NEXT WEEKEND, 27TH AND 28TH JULY AS CONSTRUCTION WORK WILL BE CONFINED TO A SMALL AREA AND CAN BE CORDONED OFF.

WE SINCERELY APOLOGISE FOR ANY DISAPPOINTMENT OR INCONVENIENCE WHICH THIS CLOSURE CONTINUES TO CAUSE.

SIGNED; John Curran, Hon. Secretary.

Heritage Week 2024

As part of National Heritage Week, we will be hosting an open day on Saturday 24th of August from 1pm - 5pm.

There will be an outdoor display of heritage vehicles, while indoor, we will have a photographic display of heritage vehicles and a display of various road transport routes. 

The National Transport Museum, formerly the Transport Museum Society of Ireland, began with an abortive 1949 effort to preserve three Dublin trams. Totally voluntary, the Society became a limited company in 1971 and is now a registered charity, operating to international museum standards.

The museum is located in the Heritage Depot, Howth Demesne, Howth, Ireland. On 1st September 2001, the collection, increasing at an annual average rate of five, totaled 170 (average age 46 years). Sixty out of the 100 vehicles currently in Howth are on display, and others can be inspected by prior arrangement. The oldest items date from 1883, the newest 1984, 

Museum History

The Society's Museum began it's life in the Glen of lmaal in County Wicklow and operated from 1974 to 1985 before moving to it's current location at the Heritage Depot at Howth Caste, for which we are indebted to Captain Christopher Gaisford-St Lawrence, which opened on 1st June 1986.
