Really enjoyed learning more about our Viking history and what kind of a place Dublin was to live in all those years ago. An enjoyable and interesting experience overall. You don’t have to be a tourist to enjoy!

We enjoyed this and learnt a lot about the early settlers in Ireland. It's a self guided tour where you can take as much time as you like. I would recommend this to all ages.

We only spent about an hour. - rather last century, I thought. You can get a double ticket that gets you into the adjacent church. I would recommend the new exhibition at the Post Office although it makes one embarrassed to... More
