Opened in County Meath on the 6th of June 2014, the Irish Military War Museum 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.

Given the highly strained relationship between Britain and Ireland down through the centuries, the museum will explain the complex political background behind why 210,000 Irishmen from both traditions fought in the mud sodden trenches of France, Flanders and the Dardanelles during World War One as rebellion tensions erupted back in Ireland.

Twenty years later, an estimated 80,000 Irishmen of the next generation from neutral Southern Ireland again fought with the British Armed Forces against the tide of fascism during what the Irish Government called ‘The Emergency’. In addition, many Irish people served in other armies including the armed forces of the United States during World War Two. Thousands of Irish born soldiers did not return from both conflicts.

The Irish Military War Museum recreates in stunning detail examples of trenches of World War One as well as displays of the highly motorized conflict that was World War Two. The Museum houses one of the finest collections of WW2 Allied and Axis vehicles and deactivated weapons ever assembled in Ireland.
