THANK YOU FOR YOUR 5* REVIEW! We certainly pushed your buttons and we are delighted. It's easy to be an 'energetic' tour guide when your artefacts are so inspiring and we do love what we do. Our appreciation to you for the recommendation.

Exciting museum with fantastic guide gives a highlight of the main historic events in Irish history. The 30 min tour is perfect in timing. The U2 room was an extra topping of the visit.

Interesting wee museum. Part guided & part self guided. Fiona our guide was engaging, knowledgable & witty. Well worth 1-2 hours. Follow it up (or precede) with a walk around St Stephens Green.
