Was excited about the idea of this tour but it was poorly executed and left all three of us very disappointed. We overheard that it was the storytellers first time, and though he had potential, there is lots of room for improvement. The stories were sometimes incoherent and the overall narrative did not flow at all. He jumped around all... More

I need to start with a few caveats. * Apparently it was our guide's first night in the role. * He claimed to have been pretending to be drunk as part of the act. But this experience was a fantastic idea very poorly executed. We looked at other reviews and were willing to give this a chance as a night-time... More

Probably the most disappointing tourist attraction I've visited. Albeit my brother and I are college students, but still. They basically just tell you folk stories, which was okay. But I was expecting much more from a "museum".

Wasn't sure what to expect tbh... I went with my partner but is suitable for families. It's very silly, you take a walk through themed rooms whilst hearing stories from Irish folklore. You need about an hr. I won't say anymore else it'll ruin the surprise!!

My tween loved this!!! Fascinating to hear all the tales and mythology. And the guides make it so interesting for you. Better than your average guided tour. The staff are so friendly and funny too.

We visited here as a family with two boys aged 13 & 6, we all loved it ! The storytelling was a fun introduction to all the Irish myths and legends. Our favourite part was the oversized furniture -some great photos from this !

This really is more of a kids tour. I did enjoy the different rooms but they were small and when you become a leprechaun you can't really get onto the furniture and there's only 3 chairs, that's it. The story teller was fabulous and I did enjoy those. As an adult the tour could have been halved for me and... More

Actually, quite small museum which is not avilable without a tour and this is because there is nothing to do without a tour :) A set of several thematic rooms, which are much spiced up with the stories and legends told by the guide, which may be quite boring if you are familiar with irish folclore, but still entertaining. Ofcourse,... More

Went along with the family, including a 17 and 18 year old. 45 minutes of good fun. Nice stories giving an introduction to mythology. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We all enjoyed it. Worth the €10 each. Harmless family fun.

Never would have thought this would end up on the agenda when visiting Dublin, but tried it on the advice of a colleague. It's more like Leprechaun and Irish Folklore Museum. Worth knowing it's a guided tour - most of the content comes from your guide, so you have to get a timed entry ticket. seemed to be every 30... More
