Great wee place. Staff very friendly and chatty. Especially Phil who gave a great tour. Love the fact you can sit on the couch and handle the toys and big jar of free sweeties. A delightful place to visit for the real story of Ireland.

Great museum - much larger inside than it looks from the outside. Staff very helpful and extremely friendly - recommended other places to visit in Dublin and even provided a few directions. Well worth a visit.

Nice Museum covering the history of Dublin. The entrance fee was included in our bus ticket. It was worth to visit, during our stay in Dublin.
