This house museum in next to Merion Square and the National Museum of Ireland buildings. If you have time, it is definitely worth a visit. A little hard to find as maps are not consistent with the location. Hang in there, you will find it. A beautifully restored Georgian home that gives you a feel for what life was like.... More

This museum closed to the public on Saturday 20th December 2016. It will remain closed until 2020 while the attached building is being redeveloped by the Museum owners ESB.

After watching years for those beautiful Georgian doors all over the Dublin, I was quite excited to see what kind of life has been sent behind them in the early years and this museum will show you that on best possible way. It's like a step back in time, house has been decorated like it used to be. Story of... More

This was well worth the visit. Begins with a video on the original occupants of the house then a self guided tour. Some beautiful pieces of furniture and paintings. There was a small and accommodating staff. It was nice to have a cup of tea following our tour of the house. Hope this house continues to be supported.

I missed the guided tour of the house recommended here, but still enjoyed exploring the beautifully decorated home at my own pace. There are very detailed and insightful descriptions to read as you go through, describing the items displayed in each room and how the family/servants would have used them. I also liked the video at the beginning and thought... More

My friend and I visited Number 29 after a reasonable length walk on our fourth day in Dublin. My feet were aching and I was grateful of the small cafe within where we had a lovely pot of tea and gluten free cake (my friend cannot tolerate gluten and it was a treat for her to have cake). The gentleman... More

If you are looking to experience the lifestyle of the wealthy Irish, don't miss this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave great insight into the life of an Irish family and the responsibility of living in a large home. A peak into the serving quarters, kitchen and "downstairs life" was most interesting.

This museum is fascinating and offers a glimpse into life during Dublin's Georgian period. The house is beautifully re-created and decorated and offers a good idea of what life was like both upstairs and down. I would recommend the guided tour and then follow with self-guided to give time to really study house artifacts. No. 29 is a gem of... More

As a foreigner living in Dublin, I had never heard about this place before until I saw it in the list of cultural night museums. So we gave it a try and were not disappointed at all. It was very interesting to see how a rich Irish family lived back then; very traditional and beautiful furnitures and decorations; stories behind... More
