Set in old bank vaults the wax museum covers the history of ireland with wax figures and interesting displays. Few world famous figures and the freaky horror figures are good. Hand wax making was a good laugh, just need to get the hand cast through the airport and a flight on Ryanair now.....

We had a great day here. Much better than expected. Not only waxworks but a Lot of history taken in and some science facts learned. Chamber of horrors was brilliant but not for the faint hearted. Daughters loved the wax factor got to record themselves performing. Staff were fabulous on reception and shop. A bit pricey but hey it was... More

This was definitely not worth a visit. Certainly not wheelchair or baby friendly. I acknowledge it was an old bank but the corridors were extremely narrow and dark by no means suited to you g children this is not mentioned on the website. Personally I think it was a waste of money

Don't waste your money not worth the visit. I don't know what I was expecting but it certainly wasn't that. It smelt damp and fusty. It was just a mash of different plastic figures With sound.

Well worth a visit, kids really enjoyed this visit, as will adults. Very easy to get to as very central. Young kids might find some sections a bit scary, but really good

My son who is 13 couldnt wait to get out if it, it was a waste of time and the ticket price was expensive for what we seen. Wouldnt encourage anyone to... More
