This fine Victorian gothic building once stood near Inchicore Railway Works. In the Model Hall the Collection consists of Early Inventor’s models, Scientific Engineering Models, and Historic Works of Mechanical Art.
The Entrance Shop sells items of steam and garden interest, and the Steaming Kettle Teahouse can provide coffee/tea and a light lunch if booked in advance.
The 18th Century walled garden adjoining Lodge Park has been under restoration for the last few years and the old brick-faced walls are clothed with climbers, fruit trees and roses.
Wander through the walled garden, with its magnificent North South reflecting border, and then visit the adjoining Steam Museum, Steaming Kettle Tea House and Gift Shop to make for an enjoyable summers afternoon.
