Was very pleasantly surprised by the displays and would highly recommend this experience, especially if you are a thin lizzy fan. Mark was an excellent guide on the tour. A real Dublin gem.

A wonderful experience of Irish music history! It was great to walk through the studios that so many great artists have either recorded songs in or used to practice in before they went to play a gig. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and passionate about the studios eager to share his music knowledge with us. Quite surprised and impressed... More

The Museum Experience is right in the heart of Temple Bar and still seems to be a well kept secret. We did the 11.20am tour on Sunday morning with just one other couple meaning we had plenty of time to enjoy the exhibits. The highlight is undoubtedly the end of the tour which was he Thin Lizzy section, housing some... More

Saw this advertised on the back of a map and as we like our music and U2 thought we'd have a look. We booked on line and discovered we were the only ones on the tour!

we didn't realise its an actual working studios and concert venue. Lots of memorabilia of past and present artists who have recorded there, including Micheal Jackson, Van Morrison and the best of all in our opinion a room dedicated to Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy fame, there is even a room where you can dress up and play instruments great...

I arrived alone to find I was part of a very small tour group made up of a couple and me. I had no idea what to expect and thought the small group might leave me feeling awkward but it was very enjoyable. Dave, our knowledgeable guide kept us engaged and informed and answered questions.

Our tour guide was Laura, a fun, well-versed, well-articulated woman who smoothly guided us through the experience, encouraged us to ask questions during the tour, and even supported our four-man turned two-man band that was formed in the dark corners of one of the recording studios she showed us.
