Even though we live only half an hour from this wonderful facility we have only recently visited! It was a very enjoyable experience and the wax figures were excellent! It really gives you a feel for how Ireland used to be in the past. Sound effects were amazing. Great value for money!!!

Visited this lovely museum in late October. The display of life in the middle ages was superb and engrossing and I learnt a lot about the 'famine' years and the results of that. We were however, looking forward to seeing the recreation of the middle ages street, but the area had been kitted out as a Halloween 'fright night' visit.... More

The amazing collection of black-and-white prints of everyday Irish life throughout the 50's to 70's was completely captivating. The shots, taken by the husband and wife team of Padraig and Joan Kennelly, draw you right in and you can almost imagine being there. Have... More
