Given the mixed tripadvisor reviews, I wasn't sure about going, but due to the rain, I decided to give it a try. Our guide was very funny, the stories were interesting and the rooms were really cool! I particularly liked the giant furniture, even if I did struggle to climb onto it haha my only criticism is that it's a... More

The museum is serious and cute at the same time. The storyteller lady guiding us through the forest of tales was introducing leprechauns to us, and we can just hope that they were there and had themselves introduced to us. :-)

Went to this museum not knowing what to expect. Came out dizzy with sensory overload and mesmerised by the experience. As previously stated. This is not a museum. This is more like an immersion into the realms of myth and legend. These myths and legends are a thing of the past but they are brought into the context of today... More

Went here with a few friends. Was an interesting experience giving a little info on the Irish folk lore and history. Not really a museum, more like a world where leprechaun's would live. Was relatively enjoyable but I would only do this if everything else in Dublin was already done and you have time to kill. The only real highlight... More

Was very fun we had a proper laugh, feel it should be a tad longer. Would be really good if you were taking children get their imaginations going. The girl who lead our tour at 14:30 on monday the 25th was really good, she was a fantastic story teller. Would really recommend this place. Also the gentleman who seemed to... More

The name of the museum is a little misleading. It's not a museum so much as an experience. The guides bring you through while telling traditional Irish folk tales and legends about leprechauns. There is a lot of information about traditional beliefs and the mythical characters of Ireland. I loved it! My 10 year old son and our friend's 14... More

Thought this would be a bit of fun after a long day touring Dublin's wonderful museums, castles, historic sites, etc. Turned out to be a big let down, not to mention costing a pretty penny. There were 5 of us and we were in a group of about 16, which included about 4 school age children. Our guide never interacted... More

Brilliant way to spend an hour & a bit in Dublin - even with 3 teenagers. Mark the tour guide was top notch - excellent story-teller with a wide range of knowledge of the myths & legends of Ireland - and not a bad singing voice to boot ! The giants room is fun for all ages and we now... More

I would recommend this museum to anyone spending a few days in Dublin. The daytime tour is aimed at children but my sister and I still had a great time (both in our twenties). The giants' room was a really good idea but could perhaps have done with more things in it given the size of the tour. The tour... More
