About Captain Robert Halpin We are very proud of our connection to Wicklow’s hero of Telegrapy. Captain Halpin was the master navigator of that time. Inspired by the great engineering genius Isembard Kingdom Brunel Captain Halpin laid the first oceanic network of cables in the world. He was recognised at home and abroad for his great achievment. In recognition of his talent, Queen Victoria awarded “Mr Cable” lands north of Wicklow where he built Tinakilly House. While waiting for it to be completed he lived here in Haplin’s Town House.
