Event description
Join Jim Kelleher and Lar Joye of the Dublin Port Heritage team as they tell the story of the Diving Bell, now Dublin’s smallest museum.

About this Event

The 90 ton Diving Bell designed by the Bindon Blood Stoney, was a relatively cheap way for Dublin Port to expand and move eastwards away from the city centre, building 5,000 feet of deep-water berthage in the 19th century. After the lecture at Dublin Port Centre there will be a walking tour of the Docklands to the Diving Bell.
