Very poor. Not worth a visit. I followed my visit to Newman House with a visit to the Emigration museum on the docks. It is worth a visit

A beautiful restored building but I came out not knowing much more about Irish literature than when I went in, what a shame. There’s no link like a timeline between rooms, just rooms dedicated to various literary greats. Mostly seems to be dedicated to james...More

I visited this museum today and loved the gorgeous building in which it's based. This large period building on St Stephens Green is hugely historical and has wonderful high, stuccoed ceilings, sash window and views over the Iveagh Gardens. The museum offers some interesting exhibits...More

Amazing, charming and brilliant staff. Copy number1 of Ulysses. Great coffee. Spectacular coffee. Stunning garden. Memorable architecture. Some creative soundscapes. As interactive as you want it. I will return. And what, half the price of the cinema?
