#ShackletonsCabin – Shackleton's Cabin from the Quest where he died on 5 January 1921 is the topic of a talk this Saturday, 8 March at 4pm in the Royal St. George Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
The speaker and owner of Shackleton's Cabin is Mr. Ulf Bakke, who is a grandson of the shipyard owner that acquired the Quest on its return from Antarctica in 1921 when it was converted into a Sealer. The cabin was removed and has been safely maintained ever since in Norway.
All are welcome to the talk in the yacht club venue. Admission fee of €10.
Nearby you can also relive the life story of the Irish born polar explorer at the Shackleton Endurance Exhibition and gift shop located in the ferryport terminal.
The terminal will see the return of Stena Line's HSS fast-craft operated seasonal-service to Holyhead starting on 9 April.
