The Irish Military War Museum and family park,offers a fascinating insight into Irish participants' involvement in both World War One and World War Two, as well as other military conflicts in world history. The Irish Military War Museum, covering 5,000 square feet of floor space, will represent a distinctly non-political but 'must see' educational and historical resource for people of all ages and from right across the island of Ireland and beyond.

Great museum and super friendly staff. Well worth the visit, you get a lot for the 10 euro entry. You can also drive a tank and they have a great playground for kids and some ducks.

There is a children's play area/playground and covered picnic site on location. There were young children in our party who enjoyed themselves immensely.
