Visited here in July as part of a day trip to Dublin. Travelled by train from Belfast and got the bus from O'Connell Street. Took about 20 mins to get there. The school building is very impressive and is set in beautiful grounds. Museum is free. Some great photographs of Piaras and his family. Information on billboards is also very... More

Beautifully restored house where Patrick Pearse and his brother, William, ran a boys' school from 1910. Excellent permanent exhibition about Pearse and his family in the basement servants quarters and a temporary one on the Pearse family and Shakespeare on the top floor. The house was left to the nation by Pearce's sister, Margaret in 1968 and now belongs to... More

Well done to the office of public works. Lovely grounds also in St Edna's park. Nice courtyard also where we had tea and coffee. Dogs allowed in grounds when on leash.

Spur of the moment decision to come here having toured Rathfarnham Castle nearby. And SO glad we did. The place is so well restored it really gives you a sense of 1916 and a true insight into Pearse. And it's FREE.

Took this as part of a larger 1916 tour. Great location in a parklike setting. Nice history and background. Enjoyed seeing the teacups on display and so many personal effects of the Pearse family. Really set the stage for what life must have been like in 1916.

Had a great guided tour from Delma. We are three adults eight year old twins and a baby. Live locally but haven't been in 30 years. The office of the public works have done an excellent job of restoration and I highly recommend for any age group. There are lifts if required. The tour took an hour but mainly as... More

When you think of the 1916 Easter Rising, it's natural to picture dreadful death and destruction. So it was wonderful to see some of the other side of Pearse's life. Set in beautiful parkland, away from the bustle of Dublin City and yet within easy reach, the museum displays a lovely balance of the man's life - from childhood to... More

We came to the Pease Museum as part of a CIE tour. This is a very interesting place to visit to hear about the 1916 Rising and all the history involved. It is a very good place to learn about history.

A great amenity to in Dublin. Historically very important and fantastic that so much has been preserved in Pearse's memory. 3 floors filled with information spanning from his childhood until his death. Beautifully preserved. Free parking. The tea rooms need revising the selection on display is not great.
