The Foynes Aviation and Maritime Museum
Foynes Aviation and Maritime Museum Ltd is a not-for-profit charitable institution dedicated to preserving and telling the story of the pioneering days of aviation and passenger travel across the North Atlantic; the story of the creation of Irish Coffee, and the rich maritime history of the River Shannon and the Port of Foynes.
After almost 25 years, our museums have now come full circle with the opening of the Foynes Maritime Museum. We are ready for our next challenge to maintain the archival records of all aviation related activities in Ireland. During these past years, our exhibitions have matured from a fledgeling museum to a world class destination with exhibits to be found nowhere else. Our B314 replica is a prime example – it is the world’s only full scale, walk-in replica of a Boeing 314 aircraft.
