Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum

Discover the era of transatlantic passenger flights, the invention of Irish coffee and the maritime history of the majestic River Shannon.

Explore Foynes’ role in early passenger flights across the Atlantic Ocean and the legendary flying boats that came and went; carrying celebrities, royalty, rich and famous and desperate refugees alike.

The museum features a replica B314 flying boat and radio room in the original terminal building, plus a maritime museum and Maureen O’Hara exhibition. The Irish coffee lounge tells of the original location where Irish coffee was invented by Joe Sheridan.
