This small museum, situated in a terraced house in Portobello, explains the story of the Jewish Community in Ireland. Through a mixture of artifacts, contemporary news articles and many photographs it helps to describe the different landmarks for the community. The volunteer guides were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The whole visit leaves one with a sense of poignancy at passing... More

This museum is very unassuming from the outside (it was a little hard to find!) but has a wealth of stories and fantastic everyday items inside. What makes it such a favourite of mine is that it isn't run by experts in museums with fancy displays but it's staffed by knowledgeable volunteers who are experts on Jewish life in Ireland.... More

A highlight of our trip - the museum is clearly a labour of love, and we were lucky enough to have a guided tour which really gave us a deeper understanding of the story of this community. The synagogue upstairs is beautifully kept with some very moving artefacts. It's a museum that would engage everyone from schoolchildren who don't know... More

I only had a few free hours on Sunday and wanted to choose an meaningfull activity. Thankfully, my intellectual and emotional side won over a search for more entertainment. The ground floor exhibition is a chronological history of Jewish life in Ireland and full of genuine artifacts and documents. The volunteer tour guide was very knowledgable as well as very... More

The museum gives a good overview of the history of Jews in Ireland and the docent was very helpful. Although there are many artifacts on display, it was difficult to read some of the old newspaper clippings. We enjoyed our visit, but it is not a must see, even if you are Jewish.

The guides who took us around the Irish Jewish Museum were so proud of their heritage and the museum is a little gem. It just seems so sad that a thriving community of several thousand has been to reduced to about 200. It is well set out with a lot of information, and some nice little books on sale.

We found out about the museum from the Dublin tour book. As we are part Jewish we felt it would be a great place to visit. And we were right. The museum is housed within 2 old houses which have been knocked through, and it includes the original kitchen which is on show. The volunteers that work at the museum... More

Loved the visit to the museum. Very informative. Nice area to walk and get a feel of the old Jewish area. We had a tour guide from tours by locals. Peter White, lovely person. Highly recommended.

We had an absolutely marvelous time at the museum. It is full of the rich cultural history of Irish Jewry and contains many, many precious artefacts. While it isn't a very large museum, the collection is extensive and well curated, the displays fascinating and the experience immersive. It was easy to park using a nearby metre (apparently we were warned... More
