What Our Visitors Say
A fabulous and very well-presented museum. Staff are very friendly and being attached to a coffee shop, we were able to spend a comfortable time there.
The museum didn’t disappoint. Kids loved the simulators and the boat. There is also a viewing area overlooking the harbour, the cafe and souvenir shop. We learned lots of new information. I can recommend for visiting.
I love this place and all the dedication of the people who established it and run it. Great cafe and very good content in the museum.
Great experience. Kids loved it.
P&R FITNESS WEXFORD
A really enjoyable experience, the museum offers very interactive displays showcasing the era of the flying boat & really provides a great insight into the important pioneers of the industry.
As usual a great day. Good value and an excellent experience.
Excellent. Great replica plane and loads of information.

In 1989, our patron Maureen O’Hara cut the red ribbon to officially open our museum. We are proud of our achievements since those early days and look forward to many more successful years ahead. Thanks to everyone for their support over the years.
