This place is brilliant. The staff are excellent and they make the tours a lot of fun. Really interesting and from rooms with wells to ones with giant furniture - there's some great photo opportunities along the way!

The museum is actually more of a crossover between a fun-house, performance art and celtic lore. You can feel the dedication and the love that the team has put in the show. Outstanding story telling and acting by Bridget. I would definitly recommend this to families with children and couples. It might be a bit tame for stag parties tough.

This was actually the first thing we visited when we just arrived in Dublin, after having lunch. My husband and I love the folklore and tales about leprechauns and fairies, so we thought it would be fun to visit a museum built around this. The tour lasted about 1 hour and our guide was really nice and a good storyteller... More

I've probably visited this museum about 3 or 4 times with various friends. I'm in my mid twenties and it's still a fab experience. It's maybe aimed more at children but let me tell you we definitely weren't the only adults on the tour. Whoever guides you tells you stories as you go along - each time I've been I've... More

I visited this museum in December 2014 with a friend. We had no clue what to expect but we really enjoyed it. The guided tour was a nice way to learn something about Irish folk tales and our guide was really nice and she had a lot to tell. The tour was very interactive, it didn't take very long but... More

We did this on the last day of our trip to Dublin and we were really glad we did! Our tour guide, Alice was full of beans and really brought the information to life. It's places like this that you'll go to on a whim (it's not the biggest or most famous Dublin attraction) and end up being the one... More
