The guided tour runs on each hour and is definitely needed to guide you through the displays. They are grouped by decade but don't have many annotations. The tour brings them to life, and our guide Justine helped us put them in the context of what we've seen in the city so far and the street the museum is on... More

We were just in time for the 11am tour and got the last 2 slots. We enjoyed hearing about some of the artefacts on display and learning about the history of Dublin. We then went across to St Stephens Green with a different guide who was really entertaining and full of great information. We took a quick look around the... More

Me and two other friends went to the museum on a whim when visiting the city this weekend and were really glad that we did! You can book online before you go for 7 euros and have an option of a few different tours. We went for a guided tour around the second floor which was a timeline of Dublin's... More

My partner and I were in Dublin for two days and decided to pop in the museum to get an overview of Ireland's' history. Abie, our tour guide was excellent and provided a factual account but made it fun for all at the same time. I would highly recommend this attraction.

Visited the museum on the 22nd January not knowing what to expect. Our tour guide Abie made the visit worthwhile along with all the artifacts. Abie was knowledgeable and very humorous on the history of Ireland. One of the best museum visits we have had. Keep up the good work and Abies tag phrase "we lost" does not apply on... More

It's not a big museum but the pieces are well selected and the tour guide really makes every corner of each room come alive!

Went today with my other half, had picked up a leaflet from our hotel on the Friday and walked there to find it was closed but would re-open on the Saturday, unfortunately the leaflet didn't state this but no bother. So we returned today (Sunday) and there were 2 lovely cheerful staff to buy our tickets from, they told us... More
