Not just about Leprechauns, lots of mythological beings talked about. Make sure you have a strong person in your group, those giant chairs take some climbing ! A fun way to spend an hour

Guided tour only with a storyteller. Fun and creatively and nicely designed small museum. Take with a grain of salt and you will enjoy the experience.

My friend and I went here last week. We figured if we're in Dublin, we may as well do this even if it's cheesy. You get a lot of info about Irish folklore on this tour which was interesting. It's definitely catered more to kids,...More

This is really expensive €16 euros each and you really don’t get a lot for that! We thought it’d be a bit of fun but it really wasn’t. Found it quite cringeworthy at times if I’m honest. You could take photos but no video recording...More

We went in not knowing anything, but it was a great time...the guide is informative and the museum is fun, family friendly, and interactive. Doesn't take long to go through, but it's great for all ages.

The museum was somewhat interesting but could have been better with more interactive displays and more interpretive. Overall it was a good experience.
