Weapons and ceramics and silver, oh my! These are just a few of the things you will find on exhibit in the Decorative Arts Museum. Several unique and rare pieces are on display here like the Fonthill Vase, a Chinese porcelain vase from about 1300 AD world renowned as one of the best documented pieces of early porcelain.

Like all Dublin's National Museums, this one is free and is well worth a look around. Other permanent exhibitions include Irish Silver, Eileen Gray, Irish Period Furniture and Soldiers and Chiefs: The Irish at War at Home and Abroad: 1550-2001.
