There is no fee to this museum but I would pay Because it as that good. The most interesting experience of our Ireland trip was seeing the Bog bodies exhibit in this museum. This is a must if you are in Dublin.
To add to what others said, this museum provides a great overview of Irish history from neolithic times to the middle ages, with interesting artifacts house in a beautiful neoclassical building. Great museum cafe as well. While it is free, they are five euro donation...More

I have read the other contributors and they are spot on. There are two O'Callaghan hotels that are fine and well located; the Alexander Hotel and the Mont Clare. Alexander is a little more expensive and better. Had I the money then a stay at the Shelbourne would be in order. It is an iconic hotel in the City and was recently the subject of a fly on the wall documentary that showed the character of the hotel and the staff. Dublin is not that big and basing yourself anywhere near the Museum will allow you access to many attractions, restaurants, and pubs.
