The Dublin Port Diving Bell, presents a unique feature of Dublin Ports History. The original Diving Bell, designed by the remarkable Bindon Blood Stoney, was instrumental in the innovative construction of the Alexandra Basin and saw active service in the Port until the early 1960s. The Public can now engage with and learn about this unique piece of Dublin's Heritage. The Bell has been elevated, in a manner that allows a presentation of its intriguing history. It is now becoming a landmark feature of the evolving Dublin Docklands, on Sir John Rogerson's Quay, where it was once deployed in the repair of the quay walls.
