If you fancy a laugh and you have a spare hour on a rainy afternoon I would definitely recommend this place, the start is a bit confusing with all the history of Ireland but it does get better, the chamber of horrors is dark (I wouldn't advise children under 10 to go in) but it's great in there.

This could be so much better if only they could decide what they wanted to be. It starts off well enough with figures from Irish history but then Gollum appears who I'm sure is not in the Irish story. The Chamber of horrors is good but after that there is a Science room and a karaoke room. The finale is... More

Please don't go if you want to be in awe of the accuracy of the models likeness. But you will enjoy the comedy of some of them. I especially liked the rather tragic dog in the dungeon chamber😝 On a more sincere note...why can't they number the blinkin rooms!!!

Its strange, nothing looked like the people they were supposed to be but I still kind of enjoyed it. Lots of good photo opportunities and a little Easter egg hunt hidden around for kids. Had a good time in the 'scary' section with things jumping out at you and making you jump.. good fun! Personal favourite was definitely the dog!... More

The horror part was awesome! There are not clear directions, on the basement floor we took the left corridor first and then had to come back to see the other room. At some point we were not sure where to go...but all in all we had good time recording our own videoclip and taking lots of pictures

Some really terible figures. Characters such as harry potter and Kylie minogue were so completely unrecognisable I thought they must be some sort of joke. Voice of homer simpson character is absurd and clearly a very poor imitation. Many exhihibts in the discovery/science area don't work or are very poorly maintained. The much advertised wax mold of your own hand... More

Some of the Waxworks were so bad they were good and myself and my partner laughed most of the way through. Staff were very friendly and very helpful and it was great value for money. Highly recommended

We visited today (5/4/15) and was very very disappointed! We went too kill a little time and what a waste of money! Poorly laid out we had no idea where we was going with all the different corridors poorly sign posted! The wax figures didn't even look like the people they where meant to be! Very disappointed.

I went in to this wax museum not really sure what to expect. The history part of the museum was very informational. If you like wax museums then I would go for it, but otherwise I would skip it to do other things.

it was interesting and some of the wax works were fantastic, others not as good but over all quite enjoyable. lots of steps and ups and downs to different levels. we picked up a"mini card" too so entry was only 10.80 euros instead of 12 euros.
