Welcome to a look back at the automotive history of Ireland, as told by the National Transport Museum. Located in the Heritage Depot in Howth, the museum is filled with transport memorabilia, original period photographs, and a magnificent collection of rare and classic passenger and commercial vehicles.

Started in 1949 in an attempt to preserve three Dublin trams, the National Transport Museum has built up its collection to include 100 passenger, commercial, emergency, military and utility vehicles dating from 1883 all the way to 1984, 60 of which are currently on display to the public, with the others available to be seen by appointment.

Entirely run by volunteers, the museum aims to preserve the memories of the vehicles that served their nation’s people quietly, in the background without praise until they were unceremoniously replaced with newer models.

Bosting approximately 30 different marques, including all four Irish commercial vehicle manufacturers and the famous Hill of Howth No.9 Tram, The National Transport Museum provides a look back into the history of public transport to delight fans of the Golden Age of utility vehicles, both big and small.
