The guide was excellent and told a very interesting story of the barracks and the 1916 Rising. However he doesn’t have much to work with in terms of Physical exhibits or other Objects and Dublin Council should look to add more exhibits in the spaces.

A friend and myself visited Richmond barracks on a cold Monday morning. We were met by Joe, who was looking after the tour. Unfortunately, the Two other people who signed up for the tour didn't arrive. Notwithstanding this, Joe gave us a very informative and interesting tour, both inside and out, and I would highly recommend a visit to Richmond barracks, whether you're a visitor to the country or a local. If you're lucky enough to get Joe, you'll be well looked after.

We visited this museum and were just in time for a guided tour (cost €5) and it made our visit. Our guide (?Vincent) was very knowledgeable and spoke with honesty and wihtout sentimantality. He gave us information on this important British army barracks and it's important role in the 1916 aftermath, the War of Independence and the Irish Civil war up until it was transferred over to the irish State. I think that a visit without the tour might be disappointing, so my advice would be contact them in advance and make sure that your visit was timed for that. There is an excellent café with nice coffee and loveley cakes (no prepacked stodgy muffins!) and does lunches also. Very convenient to Drimnagh or Goldenbridge stops on the Luas Red line - cross over the canal to the museum.

We went to a talk entitled "Sass Mouth Dames" about film stars from the 40's - 50's era. A real trip down memory lane! Richmond Barracks run a talk every month on some historic event. The speakers are always excellent. Cost is 5eu which includes tea/coffee and lovely scone afterwards. Great value. You can also do guided tours of the barracks. Highly recommend it.
