Very disappointing, we walked through different rooms and the guide was friendly and had lots of enthusiasm but paying €18 to be told a few tales is a bit of a rip off. No audio-visual element involved - just storytelling. A rip off. Dublin is...More

The other reviewers do a great job of explaining the experience. So long as you know what you’re getting in too, it is totally worth the time and money. Thank you Nathan for the afternoon entertainment!!

We were able to join the last available daytime tour on a Saturday, and it was great fun. Very cute museum, and the guide was a great storyteller. We also had a fun chat with the manager before our tour started, and he was hoot....More

This is the second time I’ve visited here and it doesn’t get boring. The first room you go to after the tour has started is my favourite but I won’t spoil it for everyone. This time I took my friend as I thought it was...More

I visited the dark lands tour, 18 euro each, I wouldn't say it was worth that at all, maybe 8 euro. You just go in and walk through to different rooms and get told stories, it wasn't scary at all. The women taking the tour...More

We planned to tour this museum. We got here a few minutes before 4:30, but they would not let us join the 4:30 tour. As we were tired from our first day in Ireland, and were doing the Musical Pub Crawl later that evening, we...More

We visited on the 17th and so glad we did! Our tour guide was born to tell storys! Kept it interesting and fun and the different rooms were great! Climbing on the big chairs was quite the episode though!! Would definitely recommend.

I was so disappointed. I feel like so much more could have been done with this. The employees were wonderful and super nice but I did not enjoy the tour. I thought it was lame. It left much to be desired. Kids would go bananas...More

I really wanted to enjoy this visit, and to some extent I did. It's a charming idea and fairly well executed, though without much visible investment. Our guide, Nathan, put his heart into his commentary and it did sound fresh even though I'm sure he...More

A good tour guide helped to bring to life the props and rooms that we wondered through. The stand out room being the 'giants' room where the furniture makes you feel like one of the Leprechaun's the folklore surrounds

We were there early afternoon. It is abolutely bonkers and probably overwpriced but I liked it. The host we had certainly tried hard and told some very funny jokes and tales. I'd say put any ideas of cost - or logic - to... More
