The Days of Wireless

The Martello tower in the village of Howth, near Dublin, is different from the other historic towers nearby that were built during the Napoleonic Wars. This tower houses the Hurdy Gurdy Museum of Vintage Radio, and the location has had a connection with the wireless since 1854, when it received the first telegraph ever sent from a submarine.

Aside from an impressive collection of wireless memorabilia, the Hurdy Gurdy Museum of Vintage Radio also hosts its own radio station, which transmits in Morse Code on weekends. The museum is openly seasonally, with daily admission available between May and October, and weekend openings in the winter.
