The rooms and furnishings -- as well as the layout of the home -- are interesting and informative. It is interesting to compare the change in the quality of the furnishings, windows, ceiling height etc., from floor to floor. The video shown in the basement, before the self-guided tour, is informative. I always want to know more about the social... More

See how the well off people lived in Dublin during the time the British occupied Dublin. What makes this place worth your time and money is you see exactly how people lived. You see clothes, furniture, toys and everything else you would expect to see in the 5-story house. Each room is well done and staff is available to answer... More

Small but pretty perfectly formed. A lovely house to wander through and see the different roles and rooms. Some areas could do with a little updating, such as the nursery. Cafe was very good, lovely carrot cake!

This is a wonderful museum showing what life was about in Georgian Dublin. From the minute we entered the staff were very friendly and enthusiastic. A short film gives you a view of life from this era and then you can progress around the house at your leisure. Starting in the basement your see the kitchen and pantry, then to... More

Good place to visit If you are visiting this area of Dublin, will be worth it to visit this museum, where you can get and idea the Georgian Era from 1700's. It will take a couple of hours to take a look at this house. Sorry, no pictures in the house.

we visited this house on our short break to Dublin, it took a little while to find which corner of Merrion Square it was on but worth the look. There was a short film to watch as an introduction to the history of the house and we could then wander around on our own, there were information panels around and... More

To have a little of "Real" Georgian Dublin preserved like this is priceless. This place has been under my nose, and on my agenda, for years... but only got to visit it recently. It is just wonderful; the staff members I spoke with were interested in their era, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. The house is beautifully laid out; you start with... More

An authentic Georgian house with audio visual display of what Dublin was like (for the wealthy) in the 19th Century

Nice Little museum where you can see how a middle class Family lived 200 years ago. You are not allowed to use your mobile and your camera. We found it strange that one cannot take Pictures - off course without flash. Today where most people share there experiences when travelling by photoes on instagram, snapchat and FaceBook I think this... More

Have visited No 29 on more then one occasion as any visitors we have brought always enjoy the house. Before the tour of the house there is a short film which sets the scene of what life was like in Georgian Dublin and the type of families who enjoyed living in these beautiful houses. You then get a guided tour... More
