Greencastle Maritime Museum

The Museum is at the heart of the local community, we have built up an impressive collection of artefacts and memorabilia because of the generous loans and donations provided by the community. This has enabled the museum to promote the local culture and heritage in an area were most traditions have been neglected. The continuous support and information provided by the community has contributed to the company’s continuous development and enabled the museum to successfully identify the community needs.
