As a foreigner living in Dublin, I had never heard about this place before until I saw it in the list of cultural night museums. So we gave it a try and were not disappointed at all. It was very interesting to see how a rich Irish family lived back then; very traditional and beautiful furnitures and decorations; stories behind... More

Fascinating account of life above and below stairs in a fashionable Georgian townhouse at the turn of the 18th century. Worth planning your day so you arrive in time for the 3pm tour which starts with a not very special 20 minute film but thereafter exceeds expectations as their guide shows takes you round each of the 7 or 8...

My impression is that No. 29 is not among the more well known of Dublin's museums; our cabbie wasn't famiiar with it. In fact we weren't even sure we'd arrived, until we saw the sign on the fence. Entry is via the external stairs and through the below-street-level door. On that floor was the video room, tea room, and baggage... More

The Food was excellent but very very small portions and little vegetables . The dessert as to day for. Wine was expensive. It was worth a try but I would not be running back again. If you are going don't ask for the third floor the stairs are winding and narrow and we Ladies had to take out shoes off... More

This was a memorable visit, The Beatty family lived here from 1794 for a few years, there is a short DVD on arrival to get the feel of the tour, all rooms are on view with period furniture & fittings, from the basement/housekeepers room to family entertaining & children's & governess rooms. Admission is 6 Euro with consessions for OAP/students... More

This Georgian house was totally rebuilt in its original style by the Irish Electricity Supply Board in the 1960's and is decorated with items of the era on loan from the Irish national museum. Take a guided tour if you want to gain a full appreciation of what living in Dublin was like in the 1700's. The guides are very... More

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...
