Military history museums etc. accessible by public transport?

    Someone from abroad coming to visit for a couple of weeks, and I want to find something for him to do. His biggest interest is military history, which I know little about. Are there good military-related museums etc. I could take him to? A problem is we don't have a car, so ideally it would have to be somewhere accessible via public transport from Limerick in a day! (* Not averse to staying overnight somewhere if we can find a cheap Airbnb (so probably not Dublin).)

    There's this TripAdvisor list, but some are not accessible from Limerick: Also, I don't know how good these places are - I'm looking for places that are informative to someone (30s, male, intelligent, continental European) who has a deep interest in military history (preferably covering 20th century, but earlier periods are OK if the place is good).

    Also, we plan to stay Belfast for two nights, so somewhere in the North accessible by train or bus would be good too. (A Troubles museum, maybe? But not the Ulster Museum because by chance I visited that a few years ago and wasn't impressed.)
