A great storyteller served as our guide and had my youngest mesmerized...More

Not too expensive! First room was cool with oversized furniture! Storyteller was very enthusiastic about her job which engaged everyone.

You wander a series of small rooms, set up to make you think you're a leprechaun while a guide talks about the history of the mythical creatures and how people today still believe in them. The talk was fast and hard to follow. Some of...More

We're coming to Dublin at the start if October. Will the museum still be open or does it shut for the Winter?
