We have a huge amount of huge attractions in our all Ireland book, but just as many hidden gems that even local people didn't know existed. One of those hidden gems is The Abingdon Collection. The gentleman who owns this collection is Philip Faithfull. His collection spans over 45 years and isn't just a collection, they are his life's work and I have to say I was completely blown away when I was being shown round. From vintage cars to world war 2 memorabilia Philip has a treasure trove of both. I have to say, there is far too much in this collection to talk about in just 150 words but for those who would like to know more, you can view his website which has a wealth of information pertaining to the Abingdon collection. We wanted to reward Philip for this life's work by awarding him this Top 100 Accolade.
The Abingdon Collection
The Abingdon Collection represents over 45 years of passionate collecting and provides an opportunity for visitors to take a "walk in the past". If you lived through the 50's, 60's and 70's, or just like big boy toys, then there is definitely something for you. The Collection is open by appointment only, but every effort will be made to facilitate small groups or individuals. The Collection is open to visitors free of charge, but contributions are gratefully accepted in aid of Cancer Research UK.
