We have visited the Museum in the evening for the Darkland Tour - it was extraordinary! I've studied Irish folklore, but still our guide shared some stories with us that I was unfamiliar with. There are stories of murder, love, different creatures living in Ireland,...More

On our visit it was a good laugh with talented staff telling you mystical stories and the place was very well designed. There was a majority of couples there, both older and younger, however I think the place is best suited to children.

This place is not a cliche and well worth a visit no matter what your age. It’s the truth behind the legends of Ireland delivered superbly by fantastic guides. Our guide was ‘Pawdie’ (Mark told me how to spell his name correctly) from Kerry. He...More
