A museum is a place where artifacts of some significance, historical, cultural and such, are displayed. There are NONE of that, all you do is walk through decorated spaces and listen to stories told by the guide. HE/SHE IS THE SHOW. That’s what you oay...More

Ok, not sure what to say about this, I thought it would be a giggle with interaction, the odd fright, but the only scary thing was the lady who told us the stories and not much mention of Leprechauns !! No interaction whatsoever in fact...More

This is a great tour for younger couples & families. Our tour guide was quite the laugh, great story telling. Great for a bit of lighthearted fun whilst in Dublin.

The museum was incredibly fun, having elements of surprise, entertainment and education. What made it exceptional was the guided tour guide - Deidre - whose enthusiasm and energy really made it a memorable experience. A must see attraction in Dublin!

Fun little place to visit though it is pricey, i brought along a child who got quite bored after the giants house. Nice tour from usually a chatty Irish person!

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!

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
