  • It is good to visit but there is not much to see. You will get a guide who will give you a interesting lecture about the history of Ireland and Dublin city. If you have tickets from the green bus then it is free to go in. I liked our guide and she was very interesting and informative.
  • Wasn't sure about what expect but it was a great experience ;) the place as suggested is very small but the guide was absolutely amazing. You'll hear about history as never before. Highly recommended
  • Great little museum here which gives a nice concise history of Dublin. We also enjoyed a City of a Thousand Welcomes coffee with Mary and it was excellent. Highly recommend.
  • First and foremost Patrick the guide was awesome Very knowledgeable and funny Clear and told the stories/ history in a interesting and kept the attention span The museum it self is very neat as nearly all the items were donated by local folk Some real interesting items on display Also a dedicated room to Dublin's own U2 They are looking to expand into the next building in the coming future A must see and do experience The cafe is nice next door,with a discount with your museum ticket
  • This museum was one of the best experiences in Dublin, educating but also entairtaining. I feel lucky it was the first place I visited in this city. The exhibits, the pictures and the guide provided all the information needed to enrich my knowledge of the city's history. I loved the diversity of the exhibits, they sum up perfectly the cultural influences of Dublin. The guide (Mrs. June) was excellent during the tour and moreover with a good sense of humour. The staff was so polite and helpful.
