  • its nice go see something still left of the Jewish section. great Jewish bakery down the block
  • 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).
  • A true hidden gem. The IJM houses the history of the Jewish people's relationship and history within the Island of Ireland. Loads of artifacts and a full period synagogue. Highly worth a visit
