Cliffs of Moher Day Trip from Dublin

1,585 reviews
Making the journey from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher can be quite the challenge without shelling out the cash to rent a car. This guided tour makes it easy to affordably travel to the cliffs, as well as other hot spots in Country Clare, including Doolin, Burren National Park, and Galway. Plus, this experience comes with round-trip transport in a comfortable coach and your admission ticket to the main attraction.

Very good linear history of policing in Ireland from the 18th to 21st centuries. Displays are modern and well captioned. Lack of external signage is somewhat puzzling, opening hours are quite limited, but it's free.

Although it is situated in the grounds of Dublin Castle, apparently they are not allowed to have any signage, and as it is tucked away down a little passage you would not know it was there unless you knew about it. Our guide in the Castle did tell us when we asked, but it appears to be an "us and them" situation as far as we can see. The museum is not huge, but has a couple of dozen small rooms full of information boards and exhibits detailing the history of the Irish Police force. The museum is run by volunteers, and the guy on duty that day was very helpful and approachable. If you have some time left after visiting the Castle, do try and make a short visit.

I found this museum extremely interesting and educational.I was able to trace the history of the police force in Ireland, known as An Garda Siochana from the early years of its formation to the start of the 21st century, through archive audio visuals, photographs also the methods and means of investigating crime, as well as examples of confiscated items.Very interesting and well worth visiting this very well laid out museum.

If you're interested in the 1916 Rebellion in Dublin or you would like to know more,this is a must visit museum. Don't miss the film it gives an overall review of the time by both sides the Rebellions and the British.
