Nah, not worth the entry fee even if you're a child. In fact, what children are into little ginger men with beards and odd attire who do cobbling for a living. Be good as a one item piece in the National Museum.

This is a very well thought out look into the folklore and mythology of Ireland, with fun interactive displays and enjoyable stories from the guide. An interesting way to look at the history of Ireland and its little people. Very enjoyable! Guide was Darren, he was awesome! Thanks.

We loved this tour, it was a bit pricey but most tourist attractions are! It was fun and we enjoyed the story telling. It was something a bit different. Loved it.

Step into another world. .. walk through the rainbow corridor and see the history and life of leprechauns. And yes they had jobs... they were shoemakers :) a bit pricey but sure worth it. After all make sure you will be looking to find the treasure. Signs are everywhere just look for them!!

We went here on our last day in Dublin after coming to the city to go to Longitude festival. My choice of activities was the leprechaun museum, and after reading some reviews I thought we'd give it a go. I'd say the museum is more about Irish stories than leprechauns. It was interesting but probably not worth the 12 Euro... More

For the entrance fee of €34, I was expecting a bit more than fairy tales and s room with giant chairs. Interesting fairy tales, but not at this price. Knock €10 off for our family ticket and THEN you might get your moneys worth.

We loved our trip to the Leprechaun Museum -- we were worried it would be insanely cheesy and full of silly Leprechaun tales, but in fact it was far from it! We learned a bit of Irish folklore history and had a lot of fun climbing big furniture (yes, we're adults). We enjoyed our day tour so much that we... More
