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The very out of date introductory film we were shown upon entering the museum really set the tone for what was to follow - the picture quality and mode of storytelling wasn't of a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.

Great little museum. A shame we were surrounded by school children though as we had to keep waiting to get into the rooms which was annoying. However, this is probably because I am a school teacher on holiday!

Note this excellently presented Georgian house is closed on Mondays. The stairs and passage are narrow so might get crowded. Anticipating this we arrived exactly at 10 o'clock in the morning when they opened the doors so we had plenty of space to stop and examine at leisure the different rooms of the house, furnished as they might have been...

Arriving just as they were closing up, the wonderful staff allowed our family to come in and see this great Georgian house, set up as it might have been in 1794. My teenage son was enchanted with the history here!

This is kind of fun in an Upstairs/Downstairs kind of way. It's very interesting, the film beforehand really helps to set the stage for what went on in an upper middle-class home. The bits about the governesses and the maid of all works (usually a pre-teen girl!) helped to round out the family story of the home. Rooms are furnished,... More
