I am so happy we did this cute fun story telling tour. The storys of Irish folklore and mythology really let us understand some of the monuments and things we saw later in our trip. Perhaps not as interactive as we expected, but a pretty desent 45 min story.

The museum and guided tour was a really great experience for kids and adults alike. It was equally interesting and informative, as well as being interactive, imaginative and fun. Ruth was our guide and she was really really great. It was an excellent tour and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who visits Dublin!

Fantastic fun climbing on the chairs and tables. Had great fun. Ruth our guide was what you could hope for here... Full of energy and great stories. Wish we hah, had the kids with us they would have lived her.

I was a bit disappointed by the National Leprechaun Museum to be honest. In theory, it sounds like a great place to take kids, and some of the rooms and attractions were suitable to excite children, but the actual tour/story-telling part was boring and very lengthy and just didn't engage me at all. I can see what they are trying... More

The expectation was a lot better than the experience.We went around with a mixed group of people from the young (8/9) to those not so young (50/60) none seemed to enjoy themselves and the disappointment on the faces of the youngsters said it all.

Such a fun tour, our guide Ruth was really great, she made it fun and exciting for the kids and threw in some witty humor for the adults. I really enjoyed it :)

The promise of a National Leprechaun Museum was fun and exciting, but the reality was rather sad and lack lustre. You are guided through a series of sparsely decorated rooms, which range from being a giant's room (with a few items of very large furniture for you to climb on) to a fairy room (literally nothing except metallic walls). You... More

Great place if you want to be a kid again. Ruth the guide was fantastic and funny. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories. The rest of the staff were extremely friendly. It is also good for kids (unless they are afraid of dark-ish places).

We visited the Leprechaun museum today and had a great time! It wasn't the commercial little green people you are perhaps expecting but a series of tales and myths told by a great storyteller - Ruth. Lots of fun and doesn't take too long so lots of time to do other things in the day. Would recommend it! Not a... More
