A fun introduction to Irish folklore with an engaging and fluent storyteller, although the tour seemed a little short for the price. The rooms were evocatively decorated, representing different aspects of local myths and legends. Great for families with kids aged 7+ who are happy...More

Tour guide Paudie was very funny. Great story telling. Walk around different areas. Plenty of time spent in each room. Love the big furniture but only ninjas could sit on them. Plenary of chances to take photos. Very funny.

Recommend visiting the National Leprechaun Museum, it was great fun and the story-telling aspect of it was enjoyable. Slightly cringe in places for me but amongst a large group this was no problem.

Wasn't really sure what to expect but it was fun to hear different folk tales and to play around with the giant furniture. Our tour guide was fun and friendly.

We were there early afternoon. It is abolutely bonkers and probably overwpriced but I liked it. The host we had certainly tried hard and told some very funny jokes and tales. I'd say put any ideas of cost - or logic - to... More
