We spent a lovely few hours in this little gem of a place.. Our two grandchildren aged 14 and 11 really enjoyed it. They loved how Patrick told the stories behind all the wonderful artefacts in a humorous yet informative manner. I would recommend a visit no matter what your age. There is something for everyone

This museum was very very informative about Irish History and was short and sweet. Loved it. The tour guide made everybody feel very welcome. All of the history items were donated by the community. Learned a lot! Would highly recommend for something to do in Dublin.

We were really surprised that we enjoyed this museum so much. It's small but packed with really cool bits and bobs. It was nice to look around ourselves on the top floor but the guides second floor gave historical background which makes it more memorable. Our guide Abie was hilarious and very lovely. We learned a lot about Ireland in... More

We went to the tour in the afternoon and it was really good :) we had Rownan as our tour guide and he explained all of the information and photos around the museum in great detail. We learnt so much about the history of Ireland and Dublin.

I am really torn between a rating of 2 and 3 on here. I've gone for 2 and this is mainly because the high Trip Advisor rating built up an expectation level which we didn't feel was delivered. Firstly, web purchase is cheaper than on the door price although the lady on the door honoured the web price to us........ More

We were given a free voucher for this museum as part of our hop-on, hop-off bus tour, so, at the end of the day, we went for it, and we were really glad we did! This museum is clearly a labor of love, and the passion of our guide, June, shone through from the minute she began the tour. If... More

This was a great little museum telling you about the history of Dublin. The price was very reasonable and included a tour which is a must. Our tour guide Ronan was brilliant and led us through the history of London in a very articulate and humorous way. The rooms were filled with the history of Ireland including a room all... More
