Bizzarely, this museum made me want to find a spade and try to dig a hole into the underworld, just to see if there's any truth in the lore. 45 minutes of odd, but really well spun fun. And of course, #selfiewithseamus!

Do not be deterred by the name! This is all about folklore, mythology & the storytelling history in Ireland. Sinead was our storyteller, both engaging & enthusiastic. Big thumbs up from us all & the adults will be returning for the night time session.

This is an extremely fun way to learn about a bit of folklore. The guide, Sinead, was helpful and friendly and an excellent storyteller with a great sense of humour. The only thing that could've been improved would be if it'd been just a little bit longer - one more room, one more story, and it would've been perfect.

A great time. Definitely fun for all the family. We were really surprised to find that our tour guide Ruth had only been doing tours for a month as she was full of energy and enthusiasm and knowledge for the length of the tour. Would recommend it for anyone visiting Dublin.

Lovely way to spend an hour, we had a brilliant storyteller called Sinead who entertained us with traditional Irish folk tales, and a little bit of modern humour. Well worth a visit!

Guided tour was a brilliant laugh- this place isn't what you'd expect but its definitely worth it- the guides bring folklore to life and it is good fun in the process.
