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.

    Tried to get tickets after arriving in Dublin, but booked up for weeks (tried 09:00 cancellations , but they disappeared very fast). Just happened to be walking past, spoke to tour guide David (stood outside the front door) he said come back in 1 hour and I will give you a mini/quick tour for free. I was gobsmacked.

    I could be wrong on this (but museum/court house/cafe/gift shop) are possibly free (some or all) to visit (anyway).

    Fantastic mini tour - very worth it.
    I had a great time.

    I absolutely loved it here. The self-guided tour was great; got to spend all the time we wanted looking at the things we wanted to see.

    Really enjoyed the advertising section, alongside the brewing tour.

    We did the stoutie experience which was great.

    Spent a small fortune in the gift shop. Loved it.

    A great tour with Matt, who was both informative and amusing! And a range of whiskeys to taste as well as the souvenir glass we got with the more expensive tour.

    Have been to Dublin many times, and if it wasn’t for my nieces wedding, probably would have taken a pass and go somewhere else. We learned about Glasnevin cemetery. It is where many famous poets, writers and politicians, who shaped the city, country and world were buried. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was fascinating. Informative and entertaining. Take a taxi from Dublin, about a 20 minute ride. If you are interested in Irish history, you will get your fill. Right outside the back gate is the Grave Diggers Pub, which dates back to the early 1800s. Don’t have high expectations for anything fancy, that’s not why you go there. They will pull you a grape Guinness and it’s a very local pub.

    Had a tour with Jess today, all I can say is what a wonderful experience and great craic. For someone so you with that level of expertise and knowledge (besides the odd mayo v Dublin dig🤣) from beginning to the end it was a fantastic tour. All staff members were mega friendly and accommodating. Great value for the experience. Jess is made for the job, I’ll definitely recommend to everyone!!

    This was by far one of the coolest things I saw during my stay in Dublin! The ship has a very interesting history, but the tour guide was definitely what made the experience top notch. He was very knowledgeable, injected the right amount of reverence and humor when it was called for. I will definitely be recommending this to anyone that I know if they ever plan on coming to Dublin.

    This Viking/Medieval Ireland museum is actually located in the leftmost section of Christ Church Cathedral. It combines aspects of a wax museum, archaeology exhibit and media presentation to give you an interactive look into what life was like back in those times. It's a big museum, covering a full 3 floors of the building. You can walk through and get the gist of it in about an hour, but if you want to read any of the information or take in the media presentations, you probably want to plan for 2. Definitely a worthwhile stop if you're into this type of thing.

    Well worth a visit. Free admission. Really enjoyed the history exhibitions. Very well presented and laid out. For anyone interested in Irish military history it’s very interesting. The Asgard is also a wonderful piece of Irish history that all should visit.

    Having studied Seamus at A level in the 80s and my son having studies him last year for GCSE, we both really enjoyed the experience. What a phenomenal wordsmith and emotive writer. Great experience!
