Very good vistit, the history of Dublin was told with very passion, and with tons of fun, really. I advice anybody to visit with a guide, it was very cosy and comfortable spot and visit.

What a lovely wee place. We got free entrance as part of our hop-on-hop-off bus tour (Green Bus) but would happily have paid to get in as it is well worth it and I think inexpensive at 8 Euros or thereabouts. The guided tour was very informative and entertaining. There was a U2 exhibition on that was well put together... More

This small museum on St. Stephen's Green is located in a Georgian home in Dublin. It focuses on Irish history from 1900. The exhibits are very well done and the guides are outstanding.

This is a great way to learn something about Dublin without feeling that you need to spend all day. I really liked that it felt manageable. It's also in a great location. As with most such museums, beware that if it's a really hot day, it will be somewhat hot inside. But, it's worth it.

A surprisingly informative session held by Judith. In addition there is a huge collection of modern exhibits dating from 1900 forwards. There was an extensive Christy Brown (My Left Foot author) exhibit and an interesting Irish Times and U2 exhibition. Don't miss it!

This little museum is in a lovely Georgian house on St Stephen's green. Through the memorabilia one gets a quick overview of Dublin history and life. There are also special exhibits...when we were there a room was dedicated to Christy Brown ("My Left Foot"). The favorite part for me (and any U2 fan) is the room dedicated to the career... More

We liked this museum, first we wandered around on our own and didn't get that much out of it, but the guided tour with a knowledgeable and lovely tour guide made all the difference! Nice place to include in your Dublin stay.

I had heard about this museum from a friend the night before. It's a 50 min tour by Kieran (sp?). He led us into 2 rooms full of memorabilia and weaved a witty, hilarious story about the history of Ireland. It was such a miserable, cold day outside and it really cheered up our mood! Definitely a must in Dublin... More
