Very pleasantly surprised at how fun this museum was! We're glad we stopped in and got to hear some of the folklore of ancient Ireland. It's very well done, and we recommend it for anyone, including families with kids.

This is a fab find at the end of the rainbow! Last minute choice and worth every euro. Darren was a brilliant host, brilliant story teller and had a lovely singing voice. I'm sure it wouldn't have been as much fun if he wasn't our host. Definitely recommended.

Wonderful insight into the history of the leprechaun and other Irish folklore figures. Our tour guide, Noel, was very knowledgable and passionate, and thus made the tour very enjoyable.

This is a lovely fun place to take younger kids - 12 and under - if they are getting bored of regular museums and churches - great storytelling, fun rooms, and a cool photo op in the Giant's Chairs"

Lovely bit of leprechaun history, in the town center. There were a couple of signs leading you towards the museum, but then nothing, even one of the local pubs, had never heard of it... maybe a few more signs, would get more people through the door! Still, once instead, there were lots of lovely stories about Irish fairies & giants,... More

If you are young at heart, this place is for you. Our seven year old enjoyed it, but so did our fifty-one year old. The "museum" is a guided tour through the legend and lore of the Leprechaun focused on a younger age group. If you have ever visited Mickeys Toontown at Disneyworld, you get the idea. Our guide was... More

This tour lasts for less than hour but at 12 Euro a head, it is not worth the money. The room with the big furniture is quite fun but unfortunately, it is a guided tour and therefore you don't have enough time to explore and browse.

If you're looking for an in-depth lesson on Irish folk lore, this probably isn't going to work for you. The "tour" is about 40 minutes long and covers just the bare basics on the origins of the leprechaun. However, I think this might be great for younger kids as the guide's presentation is more like light storytelling. Everyone enjoyed getting... More

Interesting journey into the history of myths etc in Ireland. Tour girl was full of information and added some humour into the tour! Also handy in advising us what the tour actually entailed, while also helping us with directions to other places nearby. Museum was interesting and engaging, lasted about 45 minutes/1hour but felt like it flew by! Was slightly... More
