“Very interesting!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

I've been there twice and it's a definite must-see. Very informative, very cosy and very interesting place to visit. It'll give you a great look into "the insides" of a real Georgian House and the life of its inhabitants.
The prices are also pretty cheap.

“Outstanding window into 18th Century history”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

The Number 29 Georgian House Museum is an outstanding small museum in the heart of Dublin. Part of what makes Dublin such a special city are its exceptionally well preserved Georgian streets and squares, and this museum allows you to understand what it must have been like to live in one of the beautiful and very comfortable town houses which still make up so much of the city's fabric. The house has been carefully restored to its original condition in the early 1800s. The Dublin Museum Service has provided a large range of interesting and original exhibits for the whole hose from the basement, where you begin your tour, to the attic. From the short film which welcomes you to the house, to the labelling in every room (not too detailed but enough to help you appreciate and understand), everything in the museum is just right. Full marks to everyone involved in planning and implementing the museum concept. The staff were welcoming and friendly and there is even a small cafe to refresh you at the end of the tour. I highly recommend the museum to anyone who wants to understand an important part of Dublin's history.

“Excellently encapsulates a snapshot of Georgian life”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Situated in the heart of Georgian Dublin this small museum is a must see gem. Entering through the basement there is a spacious entrance area with information boards. After an introductory video you make your way through the house starting in the kitchen area.

Each room is restored sympathetically to how it would have appeared. With period furniture and artefacts the rooms are authentically laid out. Good labelling provides historical information to the right level of detail. The visit provided a good idea of what it would have been like to live then.

An added bonus is the small cafe in the basement serving tasty snacks and drinks. Well worth a visit.

“Great period home in Dublin”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

A great window into the 1800s in Dublin. €6 entry paid in the tea shop... starts with an excellent video, then treasures from basement to attic. Lots of stairs, if that is an issue. No need to wait for guided tour, plaques everywhere, and guides available. PS, you actually enter on the corner, by going down to the well marked entry

“Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is a fascinating museum and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. I learned a lot and it'd be a great place to bring primary school children............I got a fright initially as I wasn't expecting there to be mannequins in the rooms, but obviously it's a great way to showcase the clothing of the time. There's lots to see at no 29 and I look forward to returning - watch out especially for the pictures upstairs: beautiful depictions of different activities, clothing from around the world at the time, birds, animals - the list goes on. This is one museum not to be missed!
