We spent far longer than we intended at the exhibition as there was so much to look at. Well displayed including interactive computer type displays for children. The rotunda building upstairs is also very impressive civic space. It was free! which is great as Dublin is such an expensive city.

It has a true irish feel to it and I think it would get more footfall if people knew it was there, so maybe more advertising. Well worth... More

Lots of little bits and pieces to grab the attention of history fanatics, although I feel they could do more with this venue

This beautiful building is one of many free of charge sightseens in Dublin. Both main floor and basement are worth visiting.

This is an old Georgian / Victorian building in a prominent busy part of town. So its a distinctive buildling. Unfortunately it was closed so we could only look at it from the outside.

I had my first visit to this location this week despite living in the city for years. I was very pleasantly surprised by the way the exhibition was laid out and the quality of the exhibits. The fascinating story of the city is well told through time with interesting explanatory panels, audio visuals and well displayed objects. The coffee shop... More

A clear demonstration of 1000 years Dublin. The movies start when you sit down. All produced in 2000.

I hadnt been inside City Hall in Dublin for many years. What a beautiful building that most people just walk past. Drop in and admire the architecture and have a coffee on the lower floor. Clean toilets add to the attraction! Quite a bonus in the city centre. I didnt get to the museum in the vasement this time but... More
