A must visit place for music fans, especially those of U2! You can even try on a bit of Irish rock'n'roll on yourself, go for it! Our guide Adam was funny, informative and made our visit really special. Thanks a lot!

It's really a great museum for all rock'n roll lovers, U2's fans will be delighted thanks to a room totally dedicated to the group. A room also allows us to test the instruments and disguise to take pictures. However the only problem is the language barrier unfortunately.

Thank you for your review. I'm delighted you enjoyed your visit so much! I'm sorry that our tour is only offered in English, but due to our resources, it's not possible for us to offer any other languages currently. We are looking into alternative solutions to the language issue. More

The only thing I'd suggest improving is the sound in the room for the short documentary on Irish music. For a music museum, you would expect better sound quality than what sounds like a laptop speaker. Otherwise, the experience is pretty cool for any fan of Irish bands, particularly Thin Lizzy, U2 & Rory Gallagher

I passed by this museum and stopped in just as they were staring the tour. I joined in and I learned so much. I had no idea that Dublin was so important in the rock and roll scene. It was interesting to see where such famous bands and people have rehearsed, recorded, and performed. Definitely would return

Enjoyed the tour with Adam as guide. Learnt some interesting facts along the way and especially enjoyed being in the same room as Philo's guitars and memorabilia. Worth while if you're a Lizzy fan.

If you are into Thin Lizzy you'll be thrilled!! Great atmosphere in the Studio where they used to record. Can't remember the guide's name but he did an amazing job telling us the story of irish rock and roll! And you can actually play in one of the rooms. Woth it!

The museum is worth visiting if you're in to rock, but it's not mind blowing, especially if you're after some U2 relics and stories. Thin Lizzy had the widest range of items on show.

I found it so interesting and exciting, is not only a "listen to" tour, you can also get to be involved (won't say much as I don't want to spoil the fun). I would recommend to come with a group friends or family, I came with my boyfriend and is such a great fun, specially for music fans. Would definitely... More

We found the tickets in groupon, the visit last one hour and the guide Grainne was really nice. It was a nice Saturday afternoon to spend visiting the museum, I didn't know they still recondite music in this place.
