I saw a recommendation to visit the Georgian House at 29 Fitzwilliam Street Lower in the Rick Steves’ Ireland Guidebook. I love restored houses and the stories of the people who lived there and how they went about their daily lives. You start with a short film about the family and the house’s history. Take a guided tour if you... More

I was desperate to visit this place. It was top of my list along with the Guinness Storehouse. We bought a hop on hop off bus ticket and did the tour. We worked out which stop to get off at. I had already looked in my guide book about times etc and I asked the tour guide on the bus... More

This is not my first visit to this beautifully restored Georgian House and it won't be my last. Over the last 10 yrs I have visited six times. Each visit as good as the last. If you want a taste of Georgian Dublin then this house should be top of your list. From the moment you enter through the servants... More

We visited this museum as part of the Culture Night 2014 when many museums, galleries etc open for free and late into the night. It was busy and popular and so we had to queue in the rain to get in but only for a short time. The staff worked really hard to get people in and out of the... More

On any trip to Dublin you see so many Georgian buildings so it's good to get the chance to look round inside and see one as it might have been when it was built. It must have been a real golden age then, this place would have been a short walk from the fields surrounding the city and it seems... More

As with certain other attractions like the Jeanie Johnston and GPO museum, I'm simply amazed this is not far higher up in the trip advisor rankings. Number 29 is a beautifully restored Georgian townhouse, with rooms across 4 floors. You enter via the basement of a neighbouring house, where there is an informative and pleasingly corny video in which the... More

An absolutely delightful Georgian townhouse decorated as it would have been at the appropriate time period. We had an extraordinarily attentive and knowledgeable guide (Niall) who gave me and my mother an individual tour. My Mother was in a wheelchair so she could not go to the upper floors, but she was extremely happy with what she could do and... More

The very out of date introductory film we were shown upon entering the museum really set the tone for what was to follow - the picture quality and mode of storytelling wasn't of a museum standard. It was busy so you could barely hear what was being said on the film at times over the sound of people coming in... More

But be prepared for stairs. Showed how a family lived in Georgian Dublin. No photography allowed and you have to leave your backpacks in a locker. Film was fun, told from the viewpoint of the lady of the house.

A great welcome, very friendly and a fab step back in time. The staff could not have been better, I had three children with me. The house is very well presented and interesting. We all really enjoyed the experience and intend to return. Best bit is its great value and children go free.
