I had never visited a Tax Museum before! And it was free!

Humorous look at the Irish tax system through the ages- and it was free. We went in just before the curators lunch and he came up to us and said he was having his lunch and would... read more

Humorous look at the Irish tax system through the ages- and it was free. We went in just before the curators lunch and he came up to us and said he was having his lunch and would shut the doors but not to rush and let him know when we were ready to go, also assuring us that he did... More

The "tax man" is perhaps one of nature's least loved human beings but this little museum casts a humorous eye upon his activities over the centuries. The museum is filled with unusual artifacts - all of which are very well explained. Between 20 and 30 minutes is all it takes - a great distraction while you wait for the next... More

Interesting enough sounding option for your visit to Dublin, most of us spend our lives dealing with these people in our various countries around the world, if that is what rocks your boat when you come to the Emerald Isle to get away from it all from your own home, come and visit a museum about taxation of the masses,...

We stumbled across this museum and enjoyed having a look around. It is quite small but there is quite a lot to see and read. It only takes maybe 30 minutes to look at everything but if you wanted to be there longer you could. A hidden gem and worth a visit.

This is a gem. Tucked away behind Dublin Castle and on the way to the Chester Beatty it is often overlooked. But what a find. Take a look back to the days of stills and illegal whiskey, stamps from the old stamping building and lots of other interesting facts about the Revenue Commissioners Office. Engage with the curator and you... More

We stumbled across this museum on our way to the Beatty Library. It was free and interesting. Who would counterfeit Head and Shoulder's!

Easy to find but most people just walk past the door on their way to the famous Chester Beatty Library, which is also located in the heart of Dublin Castle. The Revenue Museum has some great exhibits, all clearly labelled and annotated. I particularly liked the revenue stamp collection - some of which are very difficult to find if you... More

I didn't know what to expect from this museum, I'd walked past it so many times without even really noticing it was there. However, it turned out to be a very interesting little museum, made more interesting by the official on duty who came out from behind his desk to give us an unofficial tour. It's generally a self-guided tour,... More
