Be aware of the fairies!

A fulfilling return to childhood for those who left it: myths, legends and Irish culture, told in a very light hearted way. Thumbs up for the guide, an awesome storyteller!

There were some displays you can read through and bits and pieces to keep you entertained. The guide then come and gives an overview of the experience and... More

The tour was definitely not what we expected. Make sure you go into this with an open mind, it's more of a story telling your than a museum. The tour guide was lovely and very excitable. The giants room could be improved if there were actually ways to get up on to the furniture. Unfortunately at 5 ft 3, trying... More

Very disappointed in this - 14 Euro each a tad expensive for what it was Its a walking tour round various 'settings' where the guide would tell the odd tale of the leprechauns. There was only 1 child of around 9 or 10 in the group and I got the feeling she wasn't impressed either. There was nothing magical about... More

A spooky, yet informative night-time adventure, guided brilliantly by our tour guide Bridgette. A unique but very fun way to start an evening in Dublin!

2 adults and 2 children €40 + €10 for the 15 month old ,we found charging for the baby way over the top. A guided tour around Dublin castle is €20 for all of us. It was good though and the stories were good ,but when you add your money up at the end of the day you feel a... More

Hi, we are sorry to hear that you experienced the charge as not justified. Compare it to a theatre performance or tickets to cinema, we only have limited space son each tour, therefore we don't charge for the toddler, but for the space. Thanks for sharing your thoughts though! Cheers, Anna More

Hi Gregor, thanks for your class review and the recommendations. We can't believe that Alice is able to cure hangovers. It sounds very paradox. We shall give it a try. Cheers, Anna More

a really sweet little museum with a story telling guide. A lot of pretty rooms and accessories. You should understand English there is not translation
