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.

  • Interesting to walk into but not all that extensive or mind blowing. If you don't have any instruments and want to haphazardly make music with friends this is the place to be but there isn't a whole lot other than random sound doodads that one can play with. I was hoping for more visual science/demonstrations/science facts. It probably should be renamed the Improvised Music Room or something because it basically uses a couple concepts of science (electromagnetism, nuclear radiation, light radiation, etc.) to run machines attached to instruments.
  • I went to Trinity and enjoyed popping in here every now and then for different shows. It really is under sold and I liked that you could wander around and gawk at different exhibits. Interactive and its FREE!!
  • Have visited a couple of times over the years. One of the few science related attractions in Ireland, which is a big plus. Handily located too, just off Pearse station. Unfortunately (for me anyway), the exhibits often rely too much on aesthetic qualities rather than actual scientific content. Do not go here expecting a science museum, nor a scientific exhibition. Rather a scientifically minded modern art gallery.
  • One of the best things to do in Dublin. The exhibitions are always interesting and there is a lovely atmosphere on there.
  • Fantastic exhibition. Would go again. So cleverly done.
