    I found this very informative and educational. I felt that I came out knowing a lot more than when I went in. You will find it particularly interesting if you have an Irish heritage, but certainly not necessary to enjoy.

    We did not know what to expect other than it is a large park. Large is an understatement, it is bigger than the centre of Dublin, and it is beautiful! There are three herds of deer, that are tame too! There is a lovely lake, many flowerbeds, and plenty of pathways to walk. For anyone who has difficulty with walking there is not a lot of seating though. There is a wonderful hidden gem of a pub, called The Hole in the Wall too! Lots of wildlife to see on the way, along with the Presidents Palace and American Ambassador (both viewable from outside gates)
    We really enjoyed it here!

    A great spot to wander around with such a huge variety of flowers and plants and at the moment there is a fascinating wildlife photo display on show

    We had a fab time at the zoo. Everything was laid out well with nice, clear and open enclosures giving you great views. Lots of keeper talks and information available. The orangutangs can climb across ropes above your head which gives a fantastic view and the snow leopard was a special sight to see. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again.

    The whole experience was amazing, from the warm welcome in reception, the the impressive restoration and wonderful delivery throughout the tour by our guide, Phelem Drew.This is a wonderful museum which should be supported to make sure it can be well maintained.

    My parents were visiting from Australia and we decided to do the tour as we’re all big sports fans. The tour was very interesting as we didn’t know much about GAA sports or Croke Park, and we walked away near experts! But it was our lovely guide Annette that made the day brilliant! She was extremely welcoming and warm, was more than happy to answer any questions anyone had, and was very knowledgeable and informing. She is a lovely lady and if you’re lucky enough to get her as your guide you won’t be disappointed!

    The GAA museum is also fascinating and I would highly recommend visiting after the tour. There’s a huge amount to see including exhibits from Bloody Sunday.

    All in all it is a must see when visiting Dublin.

    I done this tour with a group of colleagues from work and our Guide Gearóid was amazing.

    Unfortunately we were a little bit late for our tour and Gearóid allowed us to join in and went above and beyond to make sure we caught up on the bits we missed.

    I would highly recommend this tour not just for tourists to our beautiful city but also for locals, it’s a must.

    Fabulous and informative tour - I learnt so much about this difficult period in Irelands history - hadn’t realised the complexity. Abby was a terrific guide- very knowledgeable and responsive to our questions. She knows her stuff!

    If you like a bit of quality shopping, Grafton Street is the place to be. All the household names, designer brands & an upmarket department store. Don’t forget your credit card!

    I thought I knew this part of Dublin well but how wrong I was! Our excellent guide Phelim packed in the stories and insights during this entertaining walking tour from Richmond Barracks to Kilmainham Gaol. A major focus was the many interesting characters who are associated with the area. Highly recommended.

    Really lovely museum with a lot of things to see! Spent a few hours looking around at all the different exhibits. Especially enjoyed the furniture/rooms part and the fashion bits. And best thing is it's completely free to see all of the amazing things in this museum! We chose the perfect day to go here because it was raining all day.

    When planning our trip to Dublin, I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone in our family and knew this would be a hit with my American sixth-grader who has been learning about early civilizations and archaeology. Dublinia didn't disappoint.

    We were pleased with the staff who offered hands-on experiences for visitors and lots of information. The exhibits were well done and shared interesting information. We enjoyed the finale with a walk up the tower - a nice cap to the medieval portion of the tour.

    I appreciated that the museum tackled "daily life" in all forms - from eating to markets to travels. We will never forget the sounds of the "seated man." LOL!

    We went to see a fantastic performance of The lonesome West at the Gaiety Theatre on Saturday Night and what a blast we had. A full theatre back in action, it was superb to witness after these hard times for this industry. Everyone obliged by the mask-wearing rule which made our group feel very comfortable. We sat on the ground floor and were served by a lovely gentleman jack who arranged drinks for us waiting at the interval at a table. Top Class service from all staff. We will we back
