Was expecting something like Yorvik in York, probably better for families with children but not enough of interest for a visit of more than an hour, not worth the visit unless you have children.

Very interesting place to learn about Dublin's history. The museum itself is very well organised and you don't get bored.

Not going to lie, we were actually pleasantly surprised. As we both love anything to do with Vikings, we were directed here by many of our friends, family and colleagues. However, we were warned that it may be a little "kid-ish". It was nowhere near...More

Very good displays. In some areas you could feel as if you were there at that time Unfortunately the third floor exhibition was not open. There is a lengthy walk up the tower too. So going on earlier in the day is an idea as...More

For once it was nice to visit a museum where you could touch the equipment and do things by yourself. We took some very cool pictures in there.

Unless you're traveling with very young children, this is a waste of time. The only redeeming quality was the 96 step climb up the tower where the view is pretty cool.

We visited this museum on March 5. There are several buses that stop close to Dublinia. The entrance fee was reduced because of restoration works on level 3. If you purchased the combination ticket with the Church, there was no reduced fee. On level 1...More

Dublinia is a very good venue for Children. We were 2 Adults and 2 Children. The Children loved the interactive aspects of the 'Market' ie guessing which spice etc. We all enjoyed listening and watching the Gentleman explaining how dice and board games were created...More

This is a museum of Dublin aimed at tracking the history of Dublin in an accessible way. It's fun, and if you can manage 150 steps, the tower gives excellent views over Dublin. Our girls are 22 but they loved the place!

My partner and I went to the Dublinia museum as part of our Dublin Pass. I don't think we would have gone if we didn't have the pass, and this is the one part of our trip that I didn't particularly enjoy. The museum felt...More

there's more in York, we was there in October 2016 but due to floods a lot of it was closed. once it al re-opens it'd be a better choice than the Dublin one.
