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

We are still thinking about this museum. Some hidden treasures, as well as all the displays. The historic feel of the building is very comforting. It was uncrowded on a weekday morning. There are two floors open for viewing. We spent several hours here. So...More
An impressive collection of preparated animals in a building that still has its original, 19th century atmosphere. It's one of the best opportunities to have an impression of the museums of the old times. The entry is free, the staff is friendly, so... Absolutely recommended!
A very small museum compared to the grandeur of the building. It is two levels of taxidermy and only half of it looks real, a lot looks manufactured and everything in the glass cabinets of covered in dust and poorly maintained.
First visit to the museum and I lived in Dublin for many years. It’s a strange little place that is caught in the 19th Century. Loads of stuffed animals which is quaint to begin with but then just wears you out after going upstairs especially....More
The museum is packed wall to wall with dead animals (especially on the upper level)... which would be fine if you could learn about them, but there isn't a lot of information posted. The whole place is rather eery. If you have nothing better to...More
It was recommended to us to come here and we can see why. The entry is free, and the range of animals from Ireland, and all over the world, which you get to see is countless. Pop in if you’re in the Dublin, and make...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.
