Went to the wax works with my husband was disappointed with some of the exhibits. John Major, Madonna, Colin Farell was just a few that was disappointing as they didn't quite look like the people in real life. Had no idea who some of the famous Irish people were there are a lot of other Irish personalities that could have... More

Cost is 12 euro for adults. Honestly it was smaller than I had anticipated. Sure it was cute and a nice interactive visit but it was not worth the admission price. Save your 12 euro for a better admission (and surely cheaper) to one of the other many museums in Dublin (or the Book of Kells at Trinity College)...

Costs 12 euro per adult and is open daily from 10-7! Located near the Temple bar district of the city centre, housed within a historical landmark Armoury building previously the home of Ireland's bullion and arms store.

I can only concur with other reviews in that the overall standard is distinctly average and definitely overpriced. Small children ie 4-9 will have fun but otherwise a half hour visit will suffice. However what is great fun is the chance to have your hand moulded in wax at the end of the tour, our daughter certainly enjoyed that more... More

This must be one of the worst waxworks I've seen, nowhere near the standard of Madame Tassuads in London. I appreciate that the venue is tiny compared to Tassuads so a true comparison is probably unfair but even so the wax figures were nothing like who they were meant to represent. The best were the writers that were passable, the... More

So being from Dublin I thought it would be a nice day out in the city centre with the family to make a visit to the Wax Museum. Very disappointed, not alot in it, Definitely not a place for children as the kids zone is tiny. We were in and around the whole place in a half hour. Felt it... More

I don't like starting a review on a negative so I'd like to say this was in a very central position not far from the Temple Bar main bar area and was virtually 2 roads back from our hotel. That's where the complimentary bit ends. Not knowing a great deal of historical and political Irish figures, I cannot tell you... More

This museum doesn't seem to know what it want to be. Most of it is waxed figures and pre-recorded commentaries being played in a series of rooms guiding you through the history of Ireland. Then you go up stairs and you have a mini science museum that's nothing to do with wax. The finale was a room of maybe 20... More
