The Irish Museum Of Time



“For that pale breast and lingering hand, come from a more dream-heavy land, a more dream-heavy hour than this;” W. B. Yeats.

Stop the clock and walk between the swing of the pendulum, with a remarkable visit to The Irish Museum of Time. Situated in Greyfriars Church, Waterford City, this gloriously gothic style church, is home to one of the most exceptional collections of timepieces in the world. Illustrating the evolution of Irish clock making from the 17th to early 20th centuries, including grandfather clocks, and clocks that once adorned church steeples are all on display for visitors. Located in the heart of Waterford’s Viking Triangle, the collection includes table clocks, watches along with a wonderful display of clocks and watches from Switzerland, England, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, the Neverlands, Russia and even as far as Japan and Australia! Time is a fascinating subject, and sure to ignite the imagination of young visitors, and perhaps inspire a future horologist!
