Owner description: Dublinia is one of Dublin’s top visitor attractions with three exciting exhibitions all located at the historic crossroads of Dublin. There are three exciting exhibitions; Viking Dublin and Medieval Dublin recreate the city through life size reconstructions, including a Viking house and a medieval fair while Death and Disease are also investigated. Finally unearth the city’s past at the new interactive History Hunters exhibition, visit an excavation site, and see medieval bugs under the microscope in the Lab. See Dublin from a new perspective and come away knowing more about its citizens throughout the ages!

“While strolling in Dublin....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Just a short walk from our hotel in Temple Bar, Dublinia was suggested by a local doorman. It is an incredible interactive adventure explaining both visually and through archeological discovery....Dublin's Medieval past. It was very entertaining and informative!! I believe this would be a great adventure for school age children (though I didnt have mine with me) as there are many interactive stations filled with both delightful role playing and educational tasks and games. I highly recommend Dublinia for the traveler and its a great way to pass the time while the rain pours down:)

We visited the Dublinia not expecting much, but we were positively surprised, as it was very interesting, the history and the museum.

A nicely put together experience of Viking and Medieval Dublin. As informative for adults as it is for kids.
