Found this by accident since it wasn't in the first couple of pages on trip advisor for the dublin area, although it should be!. It was great fun, and Darren our leprechaun guide, was comical and very engaging. Definitely worth the euros to experience. Very quirky in a great way.

My mum and I decided to take a trip to the Leprechaun Museum whilst we visited Dublin! We had a great time here with lots of laughter. Darren was entertaining, a great story teller and also a very good singer. Well worth the visit!

We only went for a laugh but it was fantastic. We learned a lot about Irish folklore and storytelling. The staff told wonderful stories in authentic settings within the building. A great little gift shop as well

So my boyfriend and I visited the Leprechaun museum whilst we were in Dublin. There were only six of us on the tour (ourselves and another family). It was quite boring and there was not much to see. One of the rooms we went into had not even been completed yet! Definitely not worth the money! I think would be... More

A fine knowledgeable tour guide led a group of us through a variety of rooms/environments to get a feeling for how it was to be/experience the fairy world in general and the specifically the history and life of the leprechaun.

This attraction is basically a 45 minute storytelling session but this was very amusing as Darren our tour guide was an absolute delight. The stories all related to Leprechauns, faeries and changelings and he told every story with such enthusiasm that the 45 minutes seemed to fly in. There is a room with gigantic furniture for visitors to sit on... More
