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

I have seen many bad reviews for this place but it was actually quite good. You wait in a small room for 5-10min for the tour to start. Do not be very early for the tour. Interesting stories and history. Need a high level of english to enjoy.

My sisters and I visited a few days ago and were genuinely surprised by just how good this visit was. Not only in terms of the great storytelling from our tour guide, Darren, but by the immersive experience of the trip as well as just how much you learn from the attraction. It is more than just about leprechauns (hence... More

We stumbled across this while we where wondering about and thought it might be interesting and we did not know what we should expect from it. Once entering we found the story teller fun, energetic and you could tell he enjoyed his job. The tour was funny and enjoyable all the way through and I would recommend it.

My children 10 and 8 enjoyed the tour. It was the last one before we flew out of Dublin that day and it was a wonderful send off. My children enjoyed all the rooms and Sara was a remarkable story teller! =) I enjoyed it as much as the children did.
