Visited on a whim-glad we did. Our guide, Sinead was an incredible story teller. I so wish my grandchildren had been with us. I was looking for a little bit of Ireland and found it here.....unfortunately we didn't snare a leprechaun. Sinead did tell us that they are quite the clever little creatures.

Good only if you are a into leprechauns and folk lore. But not much of a museum except a few , 3-4 rooms with minimal pieces on display. more a story telling format with nothing more tan that to it. The re -deeming feature being Shanon who was articulate and could connect with the audience- from 5 year olds to... More

We found this by chance - looking at signs dotted around Dublin. It isn't very well advertised but I am so glad we found it! The small museum tells you the history of the legends of leprechauns and their origins in Ireland. Through interactive displays and wonderful story telling, you are drawn into the magical history. Led through each section,... More

Great little museum, the lovely Alice was our tour guide, with great stories of Irish folklore! Good fun in the Giants room trying to climb on to the furniture! Great way to spend an hour or 2 in dublin!

We took the "night" tour, which started at 7! The guide was fun and a very good storyteller. The tour is very interesting as you learn about all these mythical creatures such as fairies, leprechauns and merrow people. The museum itself doesn't have much, it's much more of a story telling tour, still fun!

You get a storyteller to walk you through a series of rooms and tell you Irish folktales and history. Rooms include a pot of gold, a room with giant furniture you can climb on, and a wishing well. Tons of interesting facts about why the horse shoe is lucky and where the leprechaun outfit came from. Our story teller Sinead... More

Way too expensive for the content in my opinion. Is it fun? Yes, it is. I liked to hear the story, so well told by the guide, I almost fell asleep like a baby, it was really good. But some things could be better. I would rather spend the money elsewhere honestly.

With a title like the National Leprechaun Museum, how could you NOT want to visit? This was our first thing we did in Dublin and we were not disappointed. We booked a night tour. Our guide, Bridget, was a great story teller and kept the tour interesting and interactive. There's a cute little gift shop as you leave and the... More

We started across the street at Killeeneys pub then ventured over to the museum. We purchased the tickets online thus receiving a free gift in the gift shop. You need to be there on time for the tour or you have to wait for the next one. The tour was led by an excellent storyteller who shared Irish folklore and... More
