We visited the museum on a wet afternoon for a bit of fun at the end of our trip. Sinead was absolutely excellent at telling the stories and making them come to life, I still don't understand how they fit everything into such a small area!! The only thing that could have been better was the lighting in some of... More

We made a spontaneous decision to go for a night tour at the National Leprechaun Museum on our last night in Dublin, and we loved it! We had an excellent tour guide, a young girl I forgot her name but she was awesome! She guided us through the museum and told us different stories, acting out the characters it was... More

We had a few hours to spend in Dublin while waiting for our plane so we walked around O'Connell street for a while. We spotted the sign for the museum so thought we'd have a look inside. We didn't have to wait long for the tour and the group was the perfect size so that everyone could hear and see... More

It was better than I expected, guide was really nice (and fast speaking) and if you are a little but interested in storytelling an irish folklore than this is the place for you. The kids in our group really freaked out but if your a cynical adult who want's Bayhem-Style Entertainment than this is probably a bit boring.

This is both a fun way to spend an hour and surprisingly educational. The attraction relies on the quality of the tour guide as it is all about story telling. Our guide was excellent and the kids absolutely loved the whole experience. I definitely learnt things too. On the downside perhaps it is a little expensive. And strangely they split... More

The stories were fun, but I'll confess that my immediate reaction was "That's it!??" HOWEVER, my kids ((ages 5 and 7) and that's the intended audience) have talked about it non-stop ever since. They are requesting we return. Defintely their favorite part of Dublin

We were recommended this little gem by a friend who had recently visited, and we were very glad we listened!! It is so fun and provides a little insight to Ireland's folklore. Our guide, Eita, was fab and added a lot of personality to the tour. Highly recommend and quite reasonable!

Something different to do in Dublin - storytelling based around Irish folklore - our guide Alice was a fantastic storyteller and made it really fun. The tour itself is not too long and is based around different rooms which you move through.

Don't bother, save your money! Poor on every level. Bring down the price!!! Extremely overpriced. It was embarrassing to watch. Alice deserves a pay rise!
