4. Visit the absorbing Foynes Flying Boat Museum
The Foynes Flying Boat Museum, housed in the original terminal building in County Limerick, recalls that nostalgic era when Foynes became the centre of the aviation world from 1939 to 1945.
The Museum has a comprehensive range of exhibits and graphic illustrations, where you can learn about the history of the flying boats in an authentic 1940′s cinema, featuring the award winning film ‘Atlantic Conquest’.
The original Terminal Building, Radio and Weather Room, complete with transmitters, receivers and Morse code equipment are also showcased at the museum.
