The Straffan Steam Museum is housed in a church which once stood by the Inchicore railway works in Dublin. It is located on the site of Lodge Park, a former "big house", and has an 18th century walled garden.
The museum has a selection of steam engines used for industrial propulsion, including a huge beam engine used in the Midleton whiskey distillery, a pumping engine employed in Jameson's distillery in Dublin, and a large beam engine installed in Smithwick's brewery, Kilkenny, in 1847.
The Museum is open to visitors from Wednesdays to Sundays during the summer, from 2pm to 6pm. It has a tea house offering tea and coffee, and light meals with pre-booking, and a small shop.
