My daughter and I planned a visit to the museum but we realized we were running short of time so we ran from the red hop on hope off bus to try and make the last opening time of 5.45. We arrived on time but there was a group coming in. Rather than turn us away the manager Mark went... More

Friendly, interactive and unique experience. Sinead our tour guide was fantastic and an real credit to the attraction; the tour activities require a little imagination but sinead's enthusiasm for the old folk stories really brought the little Irish tales to life. All staff we encountered were lovely. Thanks for the great recommendations for pubs as we'll we had a cracking... More

My friend and I are (lighthearted) college students and went here and had AN AWESOME TIME. Our storyteller was delightful and entertaining and the rooms were adorable. Just don't go here if you're a grump.

I had an amazing time at the National Leprechaun Museum!!!! The tour guide was hilarious, involving and very knowledgable about all things Irish folklore! It is obvious that a lot of time and care has gone into making this place tourist friendly and interactive. I feel a lot of the negative comments are a tad harsh. Definitely a worth 45mins... More

Welcoming, funny and interactive. Everything a tourist attraction should be. Our guide was informative and involved everybody in his tales and stories of everything Leprechaun! I can't believe there are negative comments for this place. We left thoroughly enjoying our experience and it didn't take too long yet it wasn't too short. Definite must see!

Basically the tickets it's just too expensive:there are 3 rooms,you can take nice pictures and listen to some nice stories but 12 euros is too much for what it offers,young children can have fun in the first room and that's it. Nice museum but I was expecting more. Excellent guide tour!

I think the word museum doesn't quite fit this place. Although how many artifacts can you have about something that is mythological. I was expecting something fun with a lot more photo opportunities. 12€ to see a big chair, hear a couple of stories, stick your head through a board of painted Leprechauns and pose with a stuffed Leprachaun and...

This is a 45-minute, family friendly, guided tour. It consists of stories and history and assistance to your imagination rather than the usual museum-type exhibits. After all, only those who believe in them have ever seen leprechauns, right? Your experience will differ with different guides - our guide, Ollie, was wonderful. The fact that there were little kids among us... More
