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.

    Lovely little museum and the tour was great, lots of interesting information and Eamon was very engaging and funny. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about the history of Dublin.

    There are lots of interesting artifacts on display. Many placards describe what they believe the meaning of the discovery is. Plan to have plenty of time to check it all out. They are many sections to explore. This location is highly recommended!

    Only ground floor open at the moment, The Irish Room, but this has the iconic trio of the giant red deer skeletons. No more booking on line required but I waited a short time as there was a q. Limited numbers in at any 1 time. Understandable as there is important roof renovations ongoing. Love seeing our native fauna up close and the fantastic blaskavich glass representations. Free entry with a 5e donation request. Not bad.

    If you want a wonderful thing to do in Dublin when it rains (something new in Dublin !) go to this library on Kildare Street. You must visit the W.B. Yeats exhibit on the ground floor in this beautiful building which examines the life and works of William Butler Yeats. The literature, folklore, personal life (like lovers !), politics, theatre, the occult, all of W.B. Yeats is here in this fabulous award winning exhibition.

    Also many NLI exhibits are scattered across the city like the photographic exhibit in Temple Bar and the Seamus Heaney exhibit in the Bank of Ireland building near Trinity College. Give them all a visit.

    Building dates from 18 century, it's located in Dublin city center - Dame street. It's next to the Dublin castle, so it's great to do both tours. In town hall you'll find beautiful exhibition about historical Dublin.

    A great place to search for your Irish roots, complete with library to study manuscripts.

    My friends and I went to Dublin for a 3 day break. We were all so disappointed with how dirty the city was, there was all kinds of litter lying round the streets and the number of drunks and druggies that were roaming the streets was frightening and one of the locals told us to watch our belongings as there was a lot of pickpockets around. The locals that we spoke to were all very friendly and helpful but we didnt feel safe most of the time. Temple Bar area, which is supposed to be the place to go for an evenings entertainment, is a place for young people and again was full of drunks and druggies. The only day we really enjoyed was the day we went out of the city on the Dart to Bray. This is a lovely little seaside resort with a lovely promenade and marina and a few restaurants.
