  • I had so much fun! The wall of clocks was so cool. And the scary part was awesome. I finally found a leprechaun and it was hilarious. A great way to end the day and have a laugh.  more »
  • I was hoping by the positive reviews that this would be a well put together and thought out wax museum. I found it to be a bit disorganized and the figures, while a few were on the realistic side...  more »
  • A very nice wax museum that you can have a lot of fun. You cannot only see the wax figures but you can touch them and sit next to them Nice escape from reality 😊  more »

  • Brilliant experience from start to finish!!!! On entering we met a very helpful staff member, unfortunately I did not ask her name!! She explained all she could about the experience. Very polite and professional manner. The exhibits themselves were fascinating. We had 2children with us age 9 and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Virtual reality is definitely some experience!!!!!
  • With the move from College Green the "waxworks" has most definitely upped the ante. A fantastic family attraction. Wonderful range of themes, photo opportunities etc. As for the chamber of horrors... seriously not for the faint hearted. Well done folks.
  • Very clever renditions of Irish and international celebrities. I really liked the Irish history aspect and also the Irish fairy tales section! It does a good job of bringing them to life.
  • We are grandparents and decided to take our grandson for a visit. Very expensive entrance fee, rooms are very small with very little in them. The enchanted garden was tiny, overall very disappointed. Would not recommend it. Staff were really lovely, such a shame it had to leave its previous premises 😣
  • This was our first visit to a wax museum and it was so great! The exhibits are fascinating and you can immerse yourself there! The details, colors and history info are very entertaining! And if you've ever seen the movie Big... they have a Zoltar machine!! And I loved the multiple floor layout! We capped it off with a wax hand mold that was very cool to watch and you can pick the shape and colors.
