About the museum

The museum is in Sovereign’s House, a Grade 2 listed building. The Eagle Takers Gallery won the Best Exhibition in Ireland in 2003. The collection contains the uniforms, medals, regalia and the two Victoria Crosses won by the Regiment. 1917 on the Western Front saw both sides beleaguered and bogged down for yet another year! The Third Battle of Ypres, commonly known as The Battle of Passchendaele would become infamous. The Royal Irish Fusiliers spent 1917 on all fronts! A more fluid war was underway in the Region of The Levant and the glorious capture of Jerusalem was the aim.

The Regimental archive and library may be viewed by appointment. Research is available by appointment only, please telephone before visiting to avoid disappointment.
