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

Very close to Merrion Square and a hop on hop off us stop. Lots of Georgian houses in this area but this was the only one open. We had tea in a nice small cafe before the self guided tour

A four-story preserved Georgian townhouse just off Merriam Square. Self-guided with an introductory video that's only moderately well done and information. But the house itself, and the furnishings, are very interesting and well-explained. An excellent glimpse of the Dublin town home of the Irish gentry in the early 1800's. Takes about a half hour, plus the 10-miute video. Enter through... More
