We spent such an interesting hour at number 29, our young guide was very informative and fun. The way the house is set out brings Georgian life alive. Well worth visiting.

I've been there twice and it's a definite must-see. Very informative, very cosy and very interesting place to visit. It'll give you a great look into "the insides" of a real Georgian House and the life of its inhabitants. The prices are also pretty cheap.

The Number 29 Georgian House Museum is an outstanding small museum in the heart of Dublin. Part of what makes Dublin such a special city are its exceptionally well preserved Georgian streets and squares, and this museum allows you to understand what it must have been like to live in one of the beautiful and very comfortable town houses which...

Situated in the heart of Georgian Dublin this small museum is a must see gem. Entering through the basement there is a spacious entrance area with information boards. After an introductory video you make your way through the house starting in the kitchen area. Each room is restored sympathetically to how it would have appeared. With period furniture and artefacts... More

A great window into the 1800s in Dublin. €6 entry paid in the tea shop... starts with an excellent video, then treasures from basement to attic. Lots of stairs, if that is an issue. No need to wait for guided tour, plaques everywhere, and guides available. PS, you actually enter on the corner, by going down to the well marked... More

This is a fascinating museum and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. I learned a lot and it'd be a great place to bring primary school children............I got a fright initially as I wasn't expecting there to be mannequins in the rooms, but obviously it's a great way to showcase the clothing of the time. There's lots to see... More

This was my second visit. The house is lovely and the staff very welcoming. This time around there was no tour available and that certainly was to the detriment of our visit. It's probably because we visited late in December. I did a tour previously and it was wonderful - the self-guided visit was interesting as well but I'd definitely... More

I was researching my family history and stumbled across this lovely museum. There were many interesting objects in the house such as a urinating chair for the male guests and very detailed children's teaching materials on the top level. Neil, the guide, was very accommodating. As my relatives lived in Upper Fitzwilliam St in the 1800s I very much appreciated... More

I visited the museum today with my class - 6th class. It was fantastic. The children and adults absolutely loved it. Our guides Niall and Avril were great with the children. They totally held their attention, brought everything to their level and were very kind towards the children. Thank you!

If you've ever stood in a beautiful Georgian square and wanted to have a look inside, this is the museum for you. Very reasonably priced and very interesting to see. A formal guided tour would have enhanced the experience, although staff were on hand to answer visitor questions. The website indicated the museum is open April to October, although we... More
