Visit to Ireland

We will be visiting Ireland in June/July next year (2015).

At this time we are at the 'route planning' stage.

I am aware of the Foynes Flying Boat museum and the Air Corps museum at Baldonnel. Are there any other museums or collections of aviation interest?

Not marine-aircraft related, but are the Alcock & Brown Vimy flight memorials at County Galway still there and able to be visited?

Any pointers and leads warmly welcomed

There is a museum devoted to the base at Castle Archdale in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, on Lough Erne, if you are venturing up to the north. The hardstanding is now part of a caravan park, and the slipways are still there. The forum has further information on it, in the Bases section.

No chance of popping over to the UK, at all??

Nothing is off the cards at this stage, but given the desire to spend quite a lot of time in Ireland and the Mrs desire to do a canal boat trip in Germany or the Netherlands, it would seem to be pushing things a bit time-wise.

Depends on what's on offer I suppose.
