The tour was enjoyable because of a great storyteller but not much to see and way overpriced. I would skip this one if I was in Dublin for only a few days.

First off, this is not a museum in the traditional sense of the word. Whilst the waiting room contains some trinkets and mementoes of leprachauns, Disney and Irish storytelling- your tour is predominantly oral storytelling. I think this musueum has great potential to showcase the...More

I attended the evening offering for adults-only and had a great time. If you enjoy folklore, storytellers, lore and myth, than this stop is worth it. It is not a grand production in terms of setting or backdrop, but if you're looking to listen and...More

Visited before returning home. I would not classify as a museum but can see why kids would like this. Advice from locals - don’t go at night. The exit is a dark back alley.

Had this in our minds before we came to Ireland. Was recommended by a friend who said it was great if you don't take it too seriously. We found that to be true. We were met with enthusiastic staff who didn't keep us waiting to...More

We went with friends thinking we were going to be entertained with the history of Irish folklore but instead we’re given a quick walk through the museum. The museum itself is unbelievably beautiful: each room is, in essence, a theater set and the the construction...More

If anyone goes on a holiday to Dublin then this is the first place I'd recommend going. They didn't just take you around and tell you the story, they tell you the story about leprechauns as well as becoming the character in the story. I...More

Going to this museum was fun and entertaining, our guide was really funny and led us through quirky rooms telling the stories of fairys and leprechauns. Very well set. Would recommend for children and grown-ups.

If you know nothing about folklore in Ireland, its worth the visit. But otherwise, its slightly boring. Although cheap, the stories are more for kids. It'd be a great place to take a family.

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