We did the tour after walking past and thinking it may just be a standard, but none the less interesting, sort of museum. We were wrong. The tour takes you into working areas of the studio, rehearsal studios, production and mixing areas and the concert area. You get to have hands on experience with equipment, pretend you're in a band,... More

A must see for any rock music fan, this new museum offers guided tours behind the scenes of a recording studio. You get to see lots of memorabilia, from Thin Lizzy to the Script, Van Morrison, Sinead etc.. And it's interactive so if you fancy trying an electric guitar, drums or singing, go for it! You can even record a... More

What a great way to spend an hour in Dublin. Not only do you get to view some great memorabilia from everyone from Van the Man to the Script, including Michael Jackson and Thin Lizzy but you get to sit in the Green Room, and perform on stage (if you want) lots of fab backstage experiences. Definitely worth a look.

I had some time on hand when I walked by and decided to give it a go. I did not expect this. First of all, this museum experience is indeed both: It is a museum and it is an experience. You have the choice to simply listen to the guide and look at pictures, touch a Fender, admire Michael Jackson's... More

Visited the museum last tuesday and I can't recommend it enough. It was such a lovely experience. A very good guide took us through the museum and told us many interesting stories. A short movie where many irish singers and groups were presented. I knew many of them, but what I didn't know was that they were irish. It was... More

Recently visited this new tourist establishment and thought it was very good. You should visit especially if you are a music fan. You explore about the history of Irish rock music about bands such as U2 and Thin Lizzy. It's good Dublin has this museum as Ireland as a great history of music success. The gentleman giving the tour was... More
