This museum is very close to where tourists will be, on one side of St. Stephens Green. Although small, it is jam-packed with key artifacts of Irish history, set in a Georgian townhouse built in 1776. Be sure to take the half hour guided tour, because that offers an explanation of the significance of the exhibits. This is a not-to-be-missed... More

Love the US part of the museum. The tour guide was cheerful and really knew his history. He was engaging with visitors and made it enjoyable. All the artifacts are fun to look at and you get really engrossed in reading all that is on the walls. There is so much to learn.

There is an entrance for this museum but if you buy the one/off bus ticket, the driver will give you a free voucher. Every hour on the hour there's a guided tour (20-30 min or so long). of the two main rooms. The guide was informative and I found his talk very interesting.
