Great Fun

A nice alternative attraction in Dublin filled with Irish folk tales. We went on the night tour which was great fun with our tour guide Bridget being both engaging and hilarious.

Stumbled on this place, was expensive at €14 each for a wee story about leprechauns, we expected to get a real leprechaun to take home with us for the price, guide wasn't a leprechaun either. Bit disappointed with the overall experience 🙁

Not your typical museum, and if you're looking for something really serious if probably isn't for you. Came here with my brothers. Great for a rainy afternoon and some banter. It's a little silly but we really enjoyed it. Have fun!

Intrigued by Irish folklore I decided to visit this museum. The tour guide guides the visitors via story telling. The guide acted in a silly matter, it does fit the leprechaun atmosphere but it is not my taste. I expected a more serious folklore museum, with deep understanding of Irish folklore but instead it is more of a quick entry... More

I expected this to be bad but not this bad. I thought it would be so bad I would be laughing but I was genuingly annoyed. You go into about 4 or 5 different rooms where a guide will tell you stories of leprechauns. The problem is I'd read the stories on the wall whilst I was waiting for the... More

We went on the daytime tour. The tour guide was very engaging, and a great story teller. I'd love to go back to the night tour and listen to some of the darker tales!

Very very funny and a great experience. The storyteller walks you around and explains a lot about Irish culture and history from the perspective of the Good People!

With friends over Christmas and wanted a break from drinking so spent a few hours here, actually pretty good and gives you something with a bit of culture to do, some interesting things to learn and all in good fun. Worth going to kill a couple of hours and give your liver a rest!

I visited the Leprechaun museum with my girlfriend on a whim more than anything. I have to say in the end it was a little boring and sort of tails off. Before we started the tour we were told it wasn't a conventional "museum" and was more of a guided tour. It basically was a few bits of fun amusing... More

We had Alice as our guide she was very helpful by letting us keep our suitcases at reception on the way round. She was a very enthusiastic and happy guide that was great at storytelling! Would definitely recommend this experience
