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

Fascinating account of life above and below stairs in a fashionable Georgian townhouse at the turn of the 18th century. Worth planning your day so you arrive in time for the 3pm tour which starts with a not very special 20 minute film but thereafter exceeds expectations as their guide shows takes you round each of the 7 or 8...

My impression is that No. 29 is not among the more well known of Dublin's museums; our cabbie wasn't famiiar with it. In fact we weren't even sure we'd arrived, until we saw the sign on the fence. Entry is via the external stairs and through the below-street-level door. On that floor was the video room, tea room, and baggage... More

The Food was excellent but very very small portions and little vegetables . The dessert as to day for. Wine was expensive. It was worth a try but I would not be running back again. If you are going don't ask for the third floor the stairs are winding and narrow and we Ladies had to take out shoes off... More
