The National Print Museum, Ireland is a unique collection of artifacts and machinery related to the printing craft in Ireland and internationally. Exhibits include Ireland’s oldest printing artifact, a hand-held casting mould from c. 1706. The collection includes a Wharfedale press, a Columbian press, and other highly-ornate printing presses, alongside Linotype and Monotype machines, mechanical hot-metal machines from the 20th century. Visit also includes an audio-visual show. Students and groups are welcome.
The museum offers letterpress printing workshops. Designed for those without prior printing experience, these workshops cover setting lead type by hand and learning the mechanics of printing. All materials will be provided and each person will print their own pieces.
