A little gem hidden away

We stumbled across this after walking out of Merrion square. If you like to see preserved houses with all furniture and a story behind it all this is a must

Managed to get here after being told by the police that all businesses in the area were closed because of the Gay Pride March (which itself was enjoyable). Small, well laid out, well staffed and well presented. Worth making the effort to visit.

On a day of Dublin activities I started the day here with my girlfriend and we were pleasantly surprised about how interesting the museum is. It only takes about 45 minutes to an hour to watch the introduction video and explore the house and it really leaves you with a sense of how people used to leave a couple of... More

My wife and I saw the Georgian House Museum. They showed as a video first explaining the museum at the ground floor and then we were at liberty to roam the museum and see the furniture and rooms above. We met Liz, a guide who explained to us many things that were very entertaining. Many thanks to her. My advice... More

My husband, grown daughter, and I toured this museum in late May of this year. What a gem! The tour started with an introductory film about the home and the woman who had lived there during the period represented. We had a very knowledgeable, friendly docent, who took us from room to room, from the bottom of the house to... More

My family and I absolutely loved this museum! We arrived for the guided tour at 3:00pm and found that we were the only ones there. This was fantastic because it meant we had our own private tour. This museum is extremely well done, from the informational video to start, to the signage posted throughout, to the knowledgeable tour guides. It... More

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.
