Interesting little museum, guided tour was good but ruined slightly as a group of foreign students wouldn't stop talking, staff were helpful and did eventually ask them to leave. Well worth a visit.

I got there just in time: last admission in July is at 4.30 pm, quite early I think. 6 euro for an adult. You start with a quite explanatory, easy to understand video ( in English, but with English subtitles making it easier to follow) and the visit all the different floors of the house by yourself, reading the information...

Well worth the visit - interesting to see how the house would have been all those years ago.. Doesn't take long and self guided tour round the house. Visited using our Dublin tour pass so entry was included in the overall cost of the pass.

What a great find, Dublin's Georgian house museum NUMBER TWENTY NINE. 4 floors of original architecture and fittings from 1790-1820. Very interesting to see a town house worked.

A most entertaining and enlightening experience for all the family. You become totally immersed in the Georgian family life as depicted in the museum. Very well laid out and is assisted by an easy self guide. The interactive panels add to the experience and can give one additional/enhanced information about the exhibits/rooms. Do use the coffee shop - very friendly... More

The house is very well presented with very friendly staff and you are given enough space & time to enjoy at leisure with interesting info available to read on the way round. Not suitable for people with a mobility disability as there are a... More

Dublin loves its Georgian architecture, and this is a beautiful home well preserved. Interesting video to set the stage for a tour of the house and the story of the expansion of the city center to this neighborhood.

This is a very nice museum for those interested in how we lived 200 years ago. The museum is also very quiet and not too crowded. There is also a cosy little cafe downstairs. Loved the governess room upstairs!

I decided to go into the museum on a whim, and was very happy. As a student I paid 3 euros for a 15 minute video and self guided tour of the house. Lots of interesting information and the people were very friendly!
