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.

I loved the tour, had no idea so many great singers were Irish. The tour was brilliant, but I dont feel like it was worth €16, we were excited that we might be able to keep the lanyard they gave us but that wasn't the case, you have to pay even more for that. I loved the tour, great insight... More

Being a student I pay 14 euros for the visit I expect a brilliant trick, the facade we put water in the mouth. I expected that there is music and exhibits but not just discs on the wall and some passages in some unavoidable rooms.

The wonderfull guide took us by the hand and let us into the world of irish rock music. She was competent and yet relaxed and humouristic, and gave us a good tour from history to the present - all in all very recommendable....

The guide's name was Conor and he was really funny and let us use a lot of equipment in the museum. It didn't feel like boring museum tour, but rather like a walk through with friends. Still, I think the entrance fee was too much, but I guess that's what the usual prices are in Dublin.

We had a fantastic tour through the history of Irish Folk and Rock Music. Our Tour Guide "Conor" explained a lot of interesting stories about the music scene in Ireland. We had a great fun on this lazy sunday morning. Thank you very much !
