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.

    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.

    When we visit Dublin we can't keep away from this place. One of the best attractions to those who love Irish history. This time, besides viewing the Sir John Lavery "Treaty" exhibit again, we took the general tour given by one of the very knowledgeable guides on Sunday afternoon. Our guide, Lisa, really brought the museum to life with her stories and interesting facts.

    We highly recommend this museum to everyone. It's housed in the Michael Collins barracks, formerly the barracks for the British army before 1922. There is also a person we want to mention who always recognizes my wife and I when we visit (even though we hadn't been there in six months). Her name is Catrina and she always greets us with a smile at the front entrance desk.

    After a gap of too many years, enjoyed seeing this excellent and interesting collection which is beautifully hung. Particularly enjoyed the many paintings gifted by Hugh Lane. The gallery is a very manageable size and you can see everything in one visit. New cafe Failte le Gra in basement apparently opened recently. Homemade food prepared each morning and friendly service.

    located in the old Royal (veterans) Hospital, this museum, is worth a visit if not just to see the hospital and grounds, however, the exhibits are worth a look.

    We visited The Icon Walk with our tour guide Patrick during his 4-hour called “Dublins best kept secrets”. It is a community of artists who have transformed back roads into a living art project. Lots of dedicated artists make the Icon Factory to a fun place to visit, buy pieces of art or some unique souvenirs to support this project. Take some time to have a chat with e.g. Anthony about art, Dublin and the world. You will not regret it.
    The Icon Factory is under threat because the landlord wants to use the space for a restaurant and the artists have not yet found a new space. I really do not understand why the city does not support and promote such a great place!

    Small little place but some nice bits & pieces on. Recently went to German movie night & later an exhibit on Love Letters. Staff were lovely. Keep an eye on this place.
