The ground floor of this museum is dedicated to Irish animals, featuring giant deer skeletons and a variety of mammals, birds and fish. The upper floors of the building were laid out in the 19th Century in a scientific arrangement showing animals by...more

The sign is small and blends in really well, I should know I walked passed it twice. I love that they call it the "Dead Zoo" its stuffed for floor to ceiling (literally). Just 2 stories tall there is so much to see. Plan to...More
The Natural Museum of Ireland is very underwhelming. The museum is outdated, displays stuffed animals from Ireland and other parts of the world. There was minimal information displayed with the animals. Could definitely be updated and improved!
Loved this museum. Though it is nowhere near as nice as the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in DC, it does have some peculiar fossils and artefacts. There are a number of animals from around the world that have been preserved ad stuffed. Also saw...More
Actually stumbled into this place trying to find the national Museum of Ireland. The ground floor is full of species that have been found in Ireland and I was blown away at the number of species particularly the variety of sea life. The upper floors...More
My family loves the ‘dead zoo’-it is a great educational way to spend an afternoon in Dublin. The number and quality of the exhibits is wonderful. It’s just a pity that the two upper levels are not open to the public-I would love to see...More
This place is full of taxidermy pretty much! They have all kinds of species of animals! There are two different levels! The first floor is smaller animals and the second floor was larger animals!
It does not take long to go through the building though!...More

Hi. The 747 bus from airport will bring you to walking distance from your hotel, €10 return per adult. Your £ sterling is very strong against the Euro at present. The museums and art galleries are free. the beaches are a short ride on the Dart railway. Pop into Irish Tourist Office, they will advise you on inexpensive places to visit. Dublin Zoo is very nice. If you shop around you will find places to eat that are reasonable, Early Birds etc. Temple Bar pubs are expensive, There are lots of shops visit if that's what you like. As I said your £'s will go a lot further at the moment.
