I found this a very enjoyable visit. The stories are well told and the atmosphere was nice, probably more for younger people but I enjoyed it none the less. The guide was lovely and told the stories well, she clearly knew her history and answered many questions.

This quirky and tiny museum is great fun for small kids and big kids alike. There's something for everyone including giant furniture to climb on, pots of gold to reach for and a simple but fun rainbow to walk through. The guided tour includes lots of stories about where the mythical ideas of leprechauns come from. Very interesting, strangely relaxing.... More

Honour was the best person we met the whole weekend! We were greeted at the door and were a little early so Honour recommended we go across the road for a drink - the pub was lovely! We got to have a little wander before going through the actual museum which was nice - we were on the tour by... More

Me, I love quirky things. And the Leprechaun Museum, it was a quirky thing. My visist was magical in its own way, and very entertaining. We had a fabulous storyteller, whom really knew her Irish folklore. She took us on quite the journey! I can definitely recommend a visist - it's fun for adults, as well as for kids.

Decided to go here before catching the airport express for our flight home, unlike earlier reviews which say go with kids there where 7 adults in our tour and all enjoyed it. Some good photo opportunities with the oversized furniture and Seamus the leprechaun in the gift shop, great fun, great guide and super friendly staff.

My 6 year old loved it! we loved hearing a bit about Irish mythology and the surprise element of exploring through unknown corridors added to the excitement and suspense. We loved the rainbow room best of all, and got special attention because we were the only ones on the tour. The brochures doesnt mention that tours go at set times... More

I thought it was going to be cheesy but felt obligated to go, given the location. I was very impressed with the pageantry and effort into creating an immersive environment for all to enjoy. The friendly staff have the gift of gab for sure.

I came here with family and my girlfriend (her first time in Dublin) in the cold month of December. It was a last stop off before heading to the airport. The first thing I would say is not to be expecting anything of prime tourist standards. The decor and all are very rustic, but for me, that didn't matter. All... More

Firstly when we booked for this tour it was solely booked to use time up prior to going back to the airport. Tongue in cheek we were told it was a story telling museum so we thought why not. Very pleasantly surprised and being young at heart we could embrace the story and it was told very well. Lots of... More
