About Foynes

Foynes (Faing in Irish) is a small town in County Limerick and home to Irish Coffee, which warmed flying boat passengers when Foynes became the stepping stone between Europe and North America in the pioneering days of transatlantic aviation (when the famous Pan Am Clippers used Foynes as their gateway to Europe and back to the US). The Foynes Flying Boat Museum, housed in the original terminal building, recalls that nostalgic era. Further afield you'll find the ruins of a medieval church look out from the hill of Knockpatrick, south of Foynes, and 5 miles to the southeast is the 13th century Old Abbey convent of the Augustinian Canonesses.
