Pioneers and Visionaries

Drawings from the Golden Age of Irish Railways
45 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 Map
Tue–Fri 10am–5pm

Ireland was at the forefront of the nineteenth-century railway revolution and the building of the railways is comprehensively recorded in the astonishingly rich collection of original drawings held by Iarnród Éireann.

The fabric of many of the railways remains today as a testament to the ingenuity and vision of railway engineers and architects. This is visible not just in the physical form of what was constructed, but also in the drawings and documents in which their ideas were expressed. This exhibition shows just a fragment of that legacy and illustrates the wealth of what has survived in the hope that there will be greater awareness of the importance of this collection.
