We really enjoyed our visit to this sweet little museum. It displays only a relatively short period in Dublin's history -- the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, covered by our guide in 29 minutes. This was a perfect amount of time, as she mentioned the highlights, which then allowed us to pursue any particular interests later. It was an intelligent and... More

Was initially hesitant to visit this museum, but being cheerfully greeted by Patrick and a lovely woman at the door quickly changed my mind. The jukebox was awesome, and I was very keen to play all the Bowie and The Smiths songs that it had to offer. The sharp, punchy humour of Patrick paired with great artefacts made for a... More

Good price, organised tours at specific times. Very informative guide June gave chronological summary from 1900's of Irish history. Very relaxed and interesting. Tons of photos and memorabilia on walls in each room. Some are self guided rooms like U2 room...we were last tour of the day so didn't get back to finish downstairs room due to time constraints. However... More

It is ideal supplement to information displayed at the Park. The is huge amount of artifacts, every with a story. And funny story I must say! Lady that told us... More

Visited the Museum with my pal who knew nothing about Irish history. It was fabulous and our guide Aoife was informative, entertaining and thoroughly knowledgable.
