The National Print Museum of Ireland is based in a soldiers' chapel in the Beggars Bush area of Dublinmarker, Republic of Irelandmarker.

The idea for the museum arose in the mid-1980s, when the need to 'save' printing machinery from the 'hot metal' era of printing became apparent.

In 1990, Bertie Ahern opened the museum's first premises in Lower Gardiner Street, Dublin. But soon they were found to be too small.

In 1991, the Garrison chapel at Beggars Bush Barracks was made available to the Museum, and in 1996, President Mary Robinson opened the new museum.

The exhibits include a Columbian Press invented by George E. Clymer.
