Excellent museum, the archaeology of Dublin through the centuries, with a couple of Egyptian mummies thrown in. I went to see the bog bodies exhibition, a fascinating and comprehensive account of human sacrifice and preservation of remains across the globe. The highlight of the museum...More
Went here as we had some spare time between visiting other places in Dublin.
It was very interesting, Not normally into history but it was an educational visit.
A must if you like to see about local history.
This is a relatively small museum, with displays arranged on fairly traditional lines, without interactive gimmickry. The central display, of prehistoric gold torques, is breath-taking, and even if you are not someone who wants to spend hours in a museum, it is well worth paying...More

I have read the other contributors and they are spot on. There are two O'Callaghan hotels that are fine and well located; the Alexander Hotel and the Mont Clare. Alexander is a little more expensive and better. Had I the money then a stay at the Shelbourne would be in order. It is an iconic hotel in the City and was recently the subject of a fly on the wall documentary that showed the character of the hotel and the staff. Dublin is not that big and basing yourself anywhere near the Museum will allow you access to many attractions, restaurants, and pubs.
