Visited the National Leprechaun Museum yesterday, when arriving you didn't expect much just a little museum, however when Podre (sorry for the spelling) greeted us and began giving us a little history about Leprechauns, we knew we were in for a treat! Going through each of the rooms, hearing different stories about the history of leprechauns was fascinating! We throughly... More

Brought two young children on a cold Saturday afternoon after a visit to Father Christmas at Arnotts. The admission charge to the Museum is a bit pricey but it's worth it. The experience is very much reliant on the guide and we had an excellent guide, Alice. She was full of life and energy; her story telling skills were amazing.... More

A nice trip into the myths of Ireland, Recommended if you are interested in fairy-tales, oterwise not. My only point of critic is that the tour was too short.

I was tipped off about this place by a local, and had some spare time to check it out (it closes a little later than some other museums). I wasn't sure what to expect but I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who has an interest in Celtic mythology and loves an interactive museum. The tourguide was really enthusiastic and...

The museum offers a 45 minute trip with a guide who takes you into the enchanting world of Irish mythological world. We had three five years old with us who enjoyed the visit too especially drawing leprechauns at the end of the visit in the shop. Only caution one of the tales narrated was a bit gory for kids but...

Dublin was having an early winter when we visited, so we had to cancel some outdoor activities and plan indoor ones. The tour lasts around an hour and moves throughout different rooms. I feel like the value is directly related to the quality of the tourguide- but ours was very good. I actually think that maybe I enjoyed it more... More

Our guide was very good and nice. The price is to high for just listening to stories... Had a nice time but not a recommendation for your to-do list

The tour takes about an hour. We moved through various rooms and listened to stories about the little folk. In one room there's massive furniture that you can climb onto and pretend you're a leprechaun. The youngest member of our party was 15, the oldest 53. We all had a really good time. Book online to get a free gift... More

Really nicely done and can imagine this would attract younger kids maybe or anybody really interested in the fairytale of leprechauns. Loved the room with the big furniture but to please a bunch of girls it was lacking any excitement. Hats off to the staff though, they were great. The storyteller we had was great but the whole concept just... More
