Foynes Flying Boat Musuem, Co. Limerick


From 1939-1945 Foynes, County Limerick was the centre of the aviation world.
Return to the nostalgic era of the flying boats.
See how the courageous pilots navigated the Atlantic and the celebrities who travelled with them.
The port of Foynes was the fulcrum point for air traffic between the US and Europe.
The famous flying boats were frequent visitors, carrying a diverse range of people, from celebrities to refugees.
The Foynes Museum recalls this era with a comprehensive range of exhibits and graphic illustrations.
You can travel back in time in our authentic 1940s cinema, while watching our award-winning film "Atlantic
Conquest" which has been compiled from original footage from the days of the Flying Boats or  sample an Irish Coffee where Chef Joe Sheridan made the first Irish Coffee to warm up some damp miserable passengers in 1942.
