In addition to being a museum, Collins Barracks would be of interest to military history buffs, as it was apparently the oldest military barracks in use in Europe up until the time of its adaptation for use as a museum in the mid 1990s.

"Officially" it is not accessible to the public.

I guess for photos you can always jump the wall............but don't get caught by the park ranger! ;-)

If you are interested in things military, the Battle of the Boyne centre is worth visiting.

If you are touring around the country, would also recommend the Millmount tower/museum Drogheda with its military memorabillia.

Enniskillen castle has an excellent millitary display - second to none in this country with weapons displayed from the seventeenth century up to the present day.

King House in Boyle Co. Rosscommon also has a fine military display.
