Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really engaging and interesting. OK its in an ex-barracks, but the military aspects didn't overwhelm the pacifists in the family! Perfectly located near Heuston train station and even has its own tram stop "Museum".

Well worth a visit. Fabulous display. Make sure you speak to Sgt McGarry. He gave us a great talk on everything.

Today started like any other Thursday with Tai Chi for our members but then we took up a special invitation to return to Cathal Brugha Barracks to attend the commemoration of Michael Collins on the 97’th. Anniversary of his death. Again Noel mc’Donnell was our host.
The ceremony at the monument erected by the Soldiers of Cathal Brugha was solemn, dignified and fitting for such an iconic historical figure. The brigadier General of the Barracks gave a speech both in Irish and English and a speech was given by the Grand niece of Michael Collins, Mary Clare O’Malley. Wreaths were laid by both speakers at the monument.
An immaculate guard of honor flanked the monument with a piper played the national anthem and a bugler played the last post and reveille. Attendees included descendant relatives of Michael Collins, Army veterans, members of the public and our Shed members.
It was both a privilege and an honor for our members to be invited to such a prestigious and significant ceremony celebrating the life of probably the most important figure in the foundation of our Nation.
Our members very much appreciated the ceremony.

Regards

The history of Ireland, especially the history of the rebellion as played out right here is masterful & overwhelming in the presentation here. What wonderful exhibits on Irish history, coinage, and history of the time and place.
The tie in of the woman's suffrage movement and its position in the rebellion for Irish freedom was informative.
The time spent here in this museum is well spent, it's just too difficult to take it all in in such a short visit.

Myself and my brother Tony went on this trip with the Cork ETB as part of the adult learning in Macroom Co. Cork. The trip the Barracks was brilliant and the officers that show us around were fantastic and they showed us the different equipment that they use and we saw all the gear they have to carry. There will be a big opened day for the public on the 11-9-19 in Collins barracks and everyone can go.

Having researched places to take my father-in-law and Uncle to see whilst the ladies went shopping, the barracks seemed ideal. A 15 Euro taxi ride later we were standing outside locked gates - the facility has VERY limited opening hours and doesn't open on weekends! Meanwhile the taxi driver sped off and given the location of the barracks there was no chance of getting another taxi. The trek back down to the city centre was via a very steep hill, which I guess built up our thirst for our next pint so not all bad.

Worth a visit if you have the time. A good display about the history of 1914 rising aswell as the history of Ireland. Free to get in and a super cafe for lunch or afternoon tea, one of the best cafes we have came across in a museum!
