This is a great, quirky, little love letter to Dublin of a museum. Tour guides are fantastic, engaging, hilarious, and really love sharing their city. Each room is packed with history and fun paraphernalia. Read the walls! You get a solid, comprehensive sense of Dublin. Bonus exhibition upstairs filled with U2 accoutrements. Get up in here!

Packed full of terrific artefacts, this is a definite stop on anyone's itinerary. Our guide Terry was an inspiration and I'm still laughing at some of her jokes. More, I left there having learned a good deal more about a city I've visited on a number of occasions.

If you like u2 is worth seeing as it got a room full of the group. Unsure of the rest of the museum as it came as a package of the u2 tour.

This is absolutely the best museum experience in Dublin, starting with its original idea itself. The tours are not too long and tiring as most of the other places, and you still get a lovely glimpse of Ireland's rich 20th-century history. They even accept the Dublin Pass, which is quite convenient. The crown jewel of the museum, however, is Patrick!... More

A great place to visit with a witty, informative guide. So much to see in a small house, well laid out. I'm really pleased we took the time to go!

On a weekend to Dublin to take in the St Patrick's Day celebrations (great) and the 6 Nations Ireland v England match (not so great if you are English), the 10 of us had taken the Dublin hop-on hop-off bus tour on Saturday in order to familiarise ourselves with the city. At the end of the bus tour we were... More

our guide June was great! I left understanding a little more of the history that doesn't get taught in Canada. These tickets were free from the DoDublin tour and I'd definitely recommend stopping in, even if you don't have free tickets. The U2 room was awesome also.

It was by far the best of the museums we visited in Dublin. Our guide, Joan, was great, informative and fun. Undoubtedly a must-see in Dublin.

Not a stuffy museum and great if you haven't much time though equally you could spend ages in there ! Very well informed guide too. Trip down memory lane for me with the 70s and 80s displays !
