Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

    You can spend hours in this museum, if you have the time. So many rooms and so much to see, read, and engage with. It's an overwhelming amount of information but easy to navigate and well done at the same time.

    Absolutely this is a must see for anyone visiting Dublin. A lot of Irish history, especially around the drive for Irish Independence. Plan well ahead as it is a guided tour and spaces fill up quickly.

    The guides are top notch. It’s a very moving experience if you are into Irish history.

    A fantastic tour by Alan. He is full of knowledge and respect for people that played an important role in Irish history. It is well worth doing the tour as it would've been very difficult to find the graves and to fully grasp the history behind the people. The exhibition is well thought out and informative. Thanks again to Alan for a fantastic tour!

    Very interesting to see the history and process of how Guinness is made. I’m not a lover of Guinness but my husband loved it here, especially the free drink at the gravity bar 👍

    Amazing collection of artifacts and other historical exhibitions. I found the bog people's remains quite interesting. I also enjoyed learning further info about the time of Brian Boru, the Vikings and Medieval Ireland.

    It's full of history and family stories. Gillian is fantastic and full of passion and knowledge on the house. She's very respectful to the families that lived there but also brought a bit of humour. I didn't realise that individual stories of people living in tenements were so well recorded and Gillian gave great advise on where to find more information. To understand the changing face of Dublin from everyday people's perspective, this is a must see. Thanks again to Gillian for a fantastic tour!

    Chester Beatty was an interesting stop on my way through Dublin's museums. Showcasing history of other parts of the world than Dublin, the artifacts and Papyrus exhibition were great to view. All complemented well by the free audio tour. Entrance is also free, but one can help with a donation.

    i was amazed at a sheer scale of this art collection. its spreads throughout 3 floors and every floor has a big number of rooms that contain all sorts of art pieces. you would need a whole day to properly examine and aprichiate every art piece this museum holds. the entry is free which was very nice also

    This was a very interesting tour about the famine ships. It was fascinating to learn about how these people lived and survived on these ships.

    Artefacts, videos, photos - even the space of the Museum is not so big, but curators fill each inch with history. Thank you!

    Fantastic walking tour and insights from Phelim. He really brought history to life and connects you to the stories and lives of those from the barracks to the gaol. Would highly recommend this tour. A great way to spend a morning in Dublin.
