Fantastic tour

Only a small tour of around 45 minutes, however the kiddies loved it. Very friendly & funny. Great gift shop at the ends with lots of different gifts & books to purchase.

We enjoyed it, and we thought the tour guide was lovely, but couldn't help but feel that the €28 Entrance fee for the two of us was a little excessive given the prices of other tourist attractions in Dublin. This did taint our experience slightly as we were expecting so much more for this our money!

Booked here to kill an hour before we left Dublin, thinking it'd be a bit naff...how mistaken I was! It was great. Such a laugh and so well planned out. This place is great for adults and kids alike, and I'll definitely be going back for the night tour when I'm back in Dublin. Would highly recommend this place to... More

Visited with my husband on our first day in Dublin. What can I say? The entrance fee is daylight robbery for a start. If you go looking for leprechaun's, fairies or enchantment prepare to be disappointed. The only leprechaun you see is in the shop at the end of the tour!! The whole experience is boring and dull. The age... More

The story teller was excellent and very informative and made you feel like you knew exactly what she was talking about. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and whilst some may feel the price is expensive, its par the course really for things to do in Dublin. The giants room is good fun and great for taking funny photographs, I... More

This is a great stop if you have a spare hour when visiting Dublin. This is a guided tour and the staff are friendly, funny and full of knowledge of Irish mythology. Good for families with kids. Somewhat pricey...

Visited here today both of us are teachers and wanted to find out more about Irish culture during half term. Unfortunately this was not quite what we experienced. Although named as a museum it is not really due to the lack of interactive opportunities for visitors to explore themselves. The main event was listening to a guide tell stories. Our... More

I didn't know what to expect here, but I loved it. An excellent intro into the folklore of Ireland and our story teller Alice made it incredibly fun and entertaining. Despite being not brave or cool ;)

From the minute we walked up to the ticket booth, we knew this place was going to be fun. Alice was our storyteller at the Leprechaun Museum and she did a great job, she had lots of energy, we were given information about folklore, Leprechauns, banshee and fairies, but she also gave us plenty of time to 'explore'. This is... More
