If you have any interest in 18th/19th century life in Dublin or Georgian architecture, visit this museum. The displays are sometimes a little precious, but all in all an interesting view into the past.

I love touring old houses and learning about how the people lived. This house has been maintained very well. However, the tour wasn't all that interesting. A lot of the stuff I learned I had heard at other houses. Also, the house itself isn't very...More
