The National Museum of Ireland-Decorative Arts and History, housed at Collins Barracks Dublin, is home to a wide range of objects, which include weaponry, furniture, silver, ceramics and glassware, as well as examples of folk life and costume.
Collins Barracks in Dublin City could be said to be the National Museum of Ireland's largest artefact, having had a unique history all of its own in another life. Collins Barracks has been completely renovated and restored to become the National Museum of Decorative Arts and History, charting Ireland's economic, social, political and military progress through the ages.
Artefacts on display range from silver, ceramic and glassware pieces to weaponry, furniture, examples of folk life and costume. All of these are displayed with imagination in innovative and contemporary galleries, which entice you to go further, look harder and examine more closely.
