Asgard Childers Dublin DocksAn historically significant yacht has risen from the depths of a shed at the back of an old Dublin jail to be restored to its former glory.

The Asgard, a boat that played a central role in the history of the state by carrying arms used to end British rule, received a €1.3m facelift, helping the ageing vessel get back to shipshape.

It is to be unveiled today at the National Museum at Collins Barracks in Dublin later, where visitors can view the state of the ship’s lovingly restored interior and exterior designs.

The ship was brought back to life by master shipwright and conservator John Kearon and his team of dedicated individuals, who were desperate to see this slice of Ireland’s rich history back on display where it belongs.

Come and check it out along with many of the other insightful museums dotted around the city whilst enjoying a break in one of the fine Dublin hotels.
