    We discovered the existence of this museum by chance while we stayed not far from the neighborhood of Portobello in the Liberties. This museum is well hidden and it is better to ensure in advance of its opening to not move for anything. We felt welcomed and we thus discovered this part of history with such an anecdote on the Jews of Russia who arrived in New York, landed at Cork, Ireland, with some to later continue their journey to escape the pogroms or well due to lack of means to be forced to stay put. I particularly enjoyed the introduction and documentation. I recommend a visit to this museum as a duty of memory. Very informative.

    This is a small but lovingly curated museum. Volunteer guides are knowledgeable and very friendly. If you meet Hilary, ask her about her son. You'll be glad.  more »

    This museum is located a bit south of the main area but well worth the search. Upstairs is an old synagogue and downstairs an excellent display of material. The folk here are passionate and very keen ...  more »

    Small and cozy museum with a lot of charm and a super inviting staff. It's not far out of the way of the city and contains a ton of information on a fairly small group, as well as having a very beautiful synagogue upstairs.

    There are not many Jews in Ireland and in Dublin, and there is only one Jewish museum in Dublin -- but it is a very nice museum. It is packed with valuable and very well preserved exhibits, it is managed and maintained by very kind and knowledgeable people. There is even the synagogue on the first floor. Definitely worth seeing!

    We really enjoyed our visit here. It's good to read about the museum first-at it's website. It's also a bit sad, as there is very little in tends of Jewish-Irish community. Surprisingly, I found a picture of my father hanging in the museum. He was a renown professor of Jewish folklore and must have visited the community and lecture there (I guess sometimes in the 1980s).

    It was okay because the tour was good but the place was small

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
