We loved this place! Our tour guide was brilliant, she would tell tales about leprechauns, we went through a door and it was magical. Lots of things to see and one room has massive furniture in it which made us look very small. I had...More

The Boss taking your ticket money is the best thing about this museum. He is witty and funny. From then on it’s dark room after dark room. Minimum electricity used and avoid if you or your children are afraid of the dark. The guide does...More

This is such a waste of money, which left us really frustrated. You think, based on the reviews that say not to miss this attraction, that there is going to be something interesting or cute. But I truly can't understand what others found fun at...More

We visited the leprechaun museum on our visit to Dublin this week and it was definitely one of the highlights for us! We thought it was just going to be a bit of silliness but actually found it extremely interesting yet really fun at the...More

This place is boring and double the price of other tours in Dublin that are guided. It's dark between the rooms with no lighting at your feet to show where your walking. We were so disappointed and raging as €32 could have been spent on...More

Truly magical place. Great fun in the room with large furniture and also lovely storytelling. You can get completely lost in the mythical for an hour!

We liked the story telling and thought the use of space was clever however there was a lack of atmosphere walking in silence from room to room...It was dark and lacking character. Some use of music, video or visual effects desperately needed to make this...More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and insight into the mystical world of Leprechauns and fairies. Our guide was so enthusiastic and her storytelling was first class, think she must have studied drama as she was very good. The giants room was great and you get lots...More

Yes or if you turn up early enough before the tour starts - if their places available it’s fine. Tours are going all day.

Pretty sure it does! It’s all one thing so there’s nowhere else to go haha. Pretty sure when we went they only did dark tales on a Friday and Saturday though but that as this month!!

Dublin apartment location (10 Replies)
I have started to look for an apartment for a few days in Dublin this summer. So far, I haven't found one in my budget that's right in the heart of the sights we want to see. Of Smithfield Square or near St. Patrick's Cathedral or near the National Leprechaun Museum or near St. Audoen's Church, which would be better? Thanks.

I think I would go for the one near the Leprechaun Museum as this is the most central. There aren't a heck of a lot of apartments in the vicinity of the museum though, could you tell us the exact address? I find sometimes places claim to be in areas and they aren't really, all depends on your own perceptions I suppose!

Might be just me, but I'd not bother with the Leprechaun museum.

Dublinia vs National Leprechaun Museum (5 Replies)
We are visiting Dublin for 1 day and only have time to visit either Dublinia or the National Leprechaun Museum. Which one is better to visit? Our kids are 9 and 12 years old. Thanks!

Have to out my hands up and say I've never been to The Leprechaun Museum and I have no plans to do so either. Dublinia is enjoyable. Consider also The Viking Splash Tour Dublin Zoo Croke Park Museum Butlers chocolate experience The Museum of National History (aka The Dead Zoo) The Science Gallery Renting bikes and touring The Phoenix Park The Ark
