A slightly different way to do something fun on a rainy afternoon. Without the guides, the tour would be bit boring but she told some very entertaining stories that shed a little light on irish culture.

I went with a couple of friends (we're all students) and we weren't expecting much but our expectations were highly exceeded! Our tour guide Sinead had only been working there for 3 weeks but she was fantastic, really drawing us all into the stories and telling us interesting facts about the history of Irish folklore. I would definitely recommend it... More

We visited on a horrible snowy day & it was fun & entertaining due to our tour guide. As noted by others go into this with an open mind & it can be enjoyed by all ages. Stories are told of fairies, leprechauns & Irish folklore which was great as we had no knowledge of these fables previously. The giants... More

Visited here with a friend on the weekend to see what it is was like - it's defiantly most suited to kids and visitors to Ireland. The attractions are quite modern and good but story is a bit long winded. The most fun part is the room with the large chairs/tables to make you feel small!

This is such a little gem, and if you blink you'll miss it (literally, we managed to walk right past the entrance without noticing it 3 times!). We went in not really knowing what to expect as we'd never heard of it, but we both learned so much about Irish folklore. Our guide Sinead was so enthusiastic, she took us... More

I can't fault our tour guide, she was fab at storytelling and had the patience of a saint when dealing with a couple of over confident children. There are some lovely aspects like the giant furniture and sensory rainbow, but as it was so dark I quite often found myself on the brink of falling asleep. I think I had... More

I went to the leprechaun museum on Friday 20th February. We booked for the last tour as they informed us they were busy and would be booked up. The tour guide was great, really enthusiastic. But the actual tour itself was a bit dull and not as fun as I thought so I left feeling a bit disappointed. The giants... More

Me & my sister visited this museum on saturday. We were told you had to take a guided tour. Are Tour Guide was a young women who was excellent. If it wasnt for her the museum would be very boring. Hence the reason you cant do a self guided tour. The museum was sort of empty & their wasnt much... More

There was a group of us over for a hen party so we wanted to do some sightseeing too. We were shown around by Sinead who was great at telling the stories and showing everyone around. She put so much effort it to it all. We didn't know what to expect when we booked it but really enjoyed it. I... More

Maybe we just drew the short straw with our storyteller because she couldn't even hold the attention of the children on the visit! There is so much scope for a fun and exciting experience but it was way off the mark.
