Everyday life in fashionable Georgian Dublin is recreated here. Walking through Dublin's famous townhouse squares to get here, you'll see well documented artifacts and information on how people lived in the time. One of my favourite places to bring overseas visitors.

This isn't my thing. I don't have that much interest in how people lived. I'm more into seeing what people have done. That said, after a cheesy introductory video, a quick tour of the house shows how life was for a rich family in Dublin.

Loved it. History brought to life in this recreated Georgian House. Huge attention to detail leaves the visitor with quite an insight into how people may have lived and worked in a time gone by.

This recreation of life in Georgian Dublin is well worth a visit- the attention to detail is impressive, although the older kids found the opening narration a bit cheesy! That said though, the artefacts and historical notes are informative and educational. The whole tour takes less than 90 mins and is good value for money. With a visit.

I really enjoyed my visit to this great attraction. At the Georgian House, you will get a great history lesson on the role each member of the household played in the household and you will get to see where in the house they lived and where they carried out their duties. One thing that stood out was the chamber pot... More

Funded by the ESB(Irish electricity company) who actually knocked down some fine buildings up the road to build their completely out of place head office, just look up Fitzwilliam street and see if you can miss, you will not!! It's the usual step back in time museum, we mainly see a lot of old country homes like this, so nice... More

South Dublin's Georgian House Museum is quite interesting, despite the cringe-worthy introduction video. The re-construction of a Georgian Era settlement is quite good, and fairly accurate from what I can tell, even with the dolls with the death-stares. It was originally just a scheme by the Irish electricity supplier (ESB), who were demolishing all of the surrounding houses, to keep... More

This is an educational tour, a step back in time and its enjoyable. Children will find it very interesting too, its a very inclusive tour. You are guided around a victorian house and shown how they lived and asked your opinion of what you thought unusual pieces of furniture were used for. Its a good way to spend time on... More

My overall memory of Number 29 is how hospitable and kind all the staff were. I myself work in a georgian house museum in Bath, i can easily say we have some fierce competition!! The rooms were fantastically displayed, with the rarest and cleverest examples of georgian furniture, most inaccessible for many museums to get hold of! I loved just... More

this is a really excellent restored townhouse. All of the period details have been well restored so if like us you are interested in restoration of houses in this period then it is a great visit. We usually ignore the films in these places but sat through this one and it was very useful if like us you had only... More
