Service Description

Arklow Maritime Museum, in the town of Arklow in County Wicklow, displays information on the maritime history of Arklow, focusing in particular on its boat building, lifeboat and fishing traditions. On display are photographs of the port dating back to the mid 19th century as well as models of vessels built in Arklow, tools, navigational equipment, paintings and artefacts. These include Sir Francis Chichester's Gypsy Moth III. Of particular interest to children is an operational model of the wheelhouse controls of a trawler. We're open all year around excluding Christmas and New Year's Holidays. Groups are welcome and visits can be arranged outside normal working hours. School visits can be organised to suit the needs of different age groups. Special discount prices are available for group bookings.
