We went to the night time tour on Saturday night. Paudie was our guide and was a great story teller. It was dark at times but all added to the atmosphere. It's something different to do, just wished I could have made it up onto the oversized chair, but sadly, being small anyway I just couldn't make it :-(

This place is amazing! So much fun, we were 4 big kids climbing all over giant furniture, running through rainbows and listening to old Irish stories! The guide Paudey was fantastic, money well spent and would highly recommend a visit.

Good fun for all, but I would say ever so slightly overpriced. And thats why i give it 3 instead of 4 out of 5. If they could slightly add to the attraction then it would get a 4. I must say the tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable.

Leave your inhibitions at home as you are turned into a Leprechaun in order to learn about Irish folklore. Some of the stories may not have a happy ending, but the guides are absolutely brilliant at their jobs and had me laughing until my sides hurt. Would go back and do it all again.

My friends and I decided to visit the Leprechaun Museum as we had some time to kill before checking into our hotel, unfortunately our money would have been better spent elsewhere! The museum promises a 'magical story telling adventure through Ireland' when in fact all it's just several dimly lit rooms and a bit of oversized furniture! We essentially paid... More

If you are visiting Dublin, you must visit this museum. It's an interactive museum suitable for all ages. Your inner child will certainly show itself as you roam the galleries in this magical place.

It may be my inner child but the national leprechaun museum was definitely one of the highlights of my visit to Dublin although the museum is quite small and you could walk past it and probably miss it. I has a great time inside learning about the Irish folk tales and the magical rhelms. The tour guide we had who's... More

In all honesty wasn't expecting much from this as it was just something to do to kill an hour before heading to a whisky tour, but what s little gem it turned out to be. Absolutely enjoyed it, the guide was fantastic, a great story teller, energetic and entertaining. This is good what ever your age and a hour well... More
