This was one of the best things we did during our trip. The collection was eclectic and interactive. What truly made the experience was our excellent tour guide June. She brought light and life to the history of the city.

Not much to see there but we stopped in because it right next to our hotel. Fun little stop but I wouldnt go out of my way to see it! Had a bit about the music that came from Dublin. Not much except for U2 and Bono and not much about then either. But cute and quaint.

We spent a lovely few hours in this little gem of a place.. Our two grandchildren aged 14 and 11 really enjoyed it. They loved how Patrick told the stories behind all the wonderful artefacts in a humorous yet informative manner. I would recommend a visit no matter what your age. There is something for everyone

This museum was very very informative about Irish History and was short and sweet. Loved it. The tour guide made everybody feel very welcome. All of the history items were donated by the community. Learned a lot! Would highly recommend for something to do in Dublin.

We were really surprised that we enjoyed this museum so much. It's small but packed with really cool bits and bobs. It was nice to look around ourselves on the top floor but the guides second floor gave historical background which makes it more memorable. Our guide Abie was hilarious and very lovely. We learned a lot about Ireland in... More

We went to the tour in the afternoon and it was really good :) we had Rownan as our tour guide and he explained all of the information and photos around the museum in great detail. We learnt so much about the history of Ireland and Dublin.
