I brought my second year (13-14 yrs old) class on this trip and it was fantastic! Our tour guide was so much fun, the kids really loved her! The tour was well laid out, not too long and interactive enough to keep the students interested. There were great photo opportunities and the students had a ball. Would definitely recommend it...

Not to be taken too seriously, this small museum was just a bit of fun which was worth it. Could have done with some seating in the first room that we were waiting in, but once the tour started it was all good fun. The room with the big furniture was brilliant for photos, as were most other rooms. The... More

Not for the Irish.... I had a bit of tine to kill when waiting for my daughter to come out of class so I went in to pass the time and was very curious about a leprechaun tour.. Perhaps kids might like it but I definitely didn't . Staff were lovely and gave it there all, but there wasn't much... More

The tour itself was overpriced, the information was nothing new to an Irish person and was severely dumbed down. Suited more towards tourists. But the pictures you could take were amusing and we did start behaving like children. Also found the tour guide a bit patronising,we were all adults on the tour but she talked to is like we were...

I recently visited this museum with a friend. We were greeted by a tour guide who was extremely over enthusiastic over this tour, which in the end, turned out to be a complete waste of time and money. 12 euros each to be bored to death. We were excited to enter the room with giant furniture such as chairs and... More

We enjoyed the stories due to the storyteller she was so into it, it made the experience all the more enjoyable. Great way to spend some time in the afternoon, we learned a little of the history of Ireland as well. This museum is great to take kids to. It's something very different to the usual tourist things to do.... More

Firstly they charged us 3 euro to take a 4month old baby! The whole tour takes about 30mins with the main attraction being a giant room which was mediocre i.e. 4 big chairs and a drawer. The rainbow is a few strings hanging from the ceiling. They only gave us 2 stories in the whole tour. Basically relative to other... More

Loved every minute of this tour. Ashleen was our tour guide and she was excellent at telling the stories, could have listened to her stories al day. I enjoyed climbing on the furniture and seeing what it was like to be a Lebrechaun 😂. This museum is not only for the kids, the big kids loved it too.
