South Dublin's Georgian House Museum is quite interesting, despite the cringe-worthy introduction video. The re-construction of a Georgian Era settlement is quite good, and fairly accurate from what I can tell, even with the dolls with the death-stares. It was originally just a scheme by the Irish electricity supplier (ESB), who were demolishing all of the surrounding houses, to keep... More

This is an educational tour, a step back in time and its enjoyable. Children will find it very interesting too, its a very inclusive tour. You are guided around a victorian house and shown how they lived and asked your opinion of what you thought unusual pieces of furniture were used for. Its a good way to spend time on... More

My overall memory of Number 29 is how hospitable and kind all the staff were. I myself work in a georgian house museum in Bath, i can easily say we have some fierce competition!! The rooms were fantastically displayed, with the rarest and cleverest examples of georgian furniture, most inaccessible for many museums to get hold of! I loved just... More

this is a really excellent restored townhouse. All of the period details have been well restored so if like us you are interested in restoration of houses in this period then it is a great visit. We usually ignore the films in these places but sat through this one and it was very useful if like us you had only... More

A fine example of Georgian history. Lovely to see show much from "behind the scenes". Plenty of rooms to step back in time - both upstairs & downstairs! Just so amazing to see how the household was run.

This is one of the most perfectly preserved homes we've seen. The kitchen in particular is fabulous. The home is situated on a street lined with beautiful Georgian architecture and is well worth a visit.

It was interesting to see how the fortunate citizens lived 1790-1820. And also how the the less fortunate citizens served them. Important social history as advertised--for all ages! A great deal of effort has been put forth so the public can enjoy! We noted several families touring, their children found it interesting too!

Nice quick visit, i will take one hour or so to visit...but well spent: the presentation at the beginning is a good introductive way to learn about life in Dublin in Georgians times and then the house itself is well kept and presented. It is definatly worth a visit.

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
