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

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.
