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

I've visited this museum during my stay in Dublin. Entrance to the museum is by the basement, so it can be easily missed. Before entering actual exhibition you can watch short (15 minutes) movie about the family that lived there as well as the city during 18th century. It was quite interesting and funny, specialy that you have insight into... More

We spent such an interesting hour at number 29, our young guide was very informative and fun. The way the house is set out brings Georgian life alive. Well worth visiting.

I've been there twice and it's a definite must-see. Very informative, very cosy and very interesting place to visit. It'll give you a great look into "the insides" of a real Georgian House and the life of its inhabitants. The prices are also pretty cheap.

The Number 29 Georgian House Museum is an outstanding small museum in the heart of Dublin. Part of what makes Dublin such a special city are its exceptionally well preserved Georgian streets and squares, and this museum allows you to understand what it must have been like to live in one of the beautiful and very comfortable town houses which...

Situated in the heart of Georgian Dublin this small museum is a must see gem. Entering through the basement there is a spacious entrance area with information boards. After an introductory video you make your way through the house starting in the kitchen area. Each room is restored sympathetically to how it would have appeared. With period furniture and artefacts... More

A great window into the 1800s in Dublin. €6 entry paid in the tea shop... starts with an excellent video, then treasures from basement to attic. Lots of stairs, if that is an issue. No need to wait for guided tour, plaques everywhere, and guides available. PS, you actually enter on the corner, by going down to the well marked... More
