Our mission is to inspire young people and impart on them that they can start anything here in Ireland.
The Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland explores technology by preserving the past, demonstrating the present and educating for the future.
Our core purpose is to inspire today’s youth to consider careers in science and engineering by highlighting the importance of innovation to human progress and the often-overlooked contributions of young people, women and Ireland to the advances in global communications technologies.
We are a museum with objects from the mid 19th century to modern connected demonstrations.

Irish Made Computers
Vintage Radio Equipment
Retro Video Games Consoles
