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.

    For such a small museum, it actually has a lot of content. The guide, Layla, was witty, entertaining and fun to listen to as she sped through Dublin's histroy. Definitely not a boring history tour. Also enjoyed the Animals in Dublin exhibit.

    It was exciting to see the amount and detail of history present in Book of Kells. While one can only see a small portion of the actual book, the exhibit does well to show all the interesting bits in greater detail. Also found the Long Room spectacular with all the historical books and busts.

    A wonderful, serene park to stroll through. It was beautful with all the autumn colours, and it has a nice pond where you can see all kinds of birdlife, including swans.

    It was such great experience! The tour around the grounds of Trinity College was amazing, our guide was a 3rd Yr student of Trinity, who was so witty, funny, knowledgeable and passionate - it was an absolute pleasure to listen to him. The Book of Kells itself and the Old Library were not guided but breathtaking althesame.

    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.

    Yes its a tourist trap, yes its overpriced and overcrowded.
    There are enough staff on to ensure you get served fast, plus serving staff at tables.
    Worth a visit but no need to spend the whole afternoon there.

    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.

    Christ Church Cathedral is near 1,000 years old, it is one of the oldest buildings in Dublin.

    The crypt runs the whole length of the cathedral.

    This tour provided a fascinating look at what people endured in the hope of finding a better life in North America. Our tour guide was interesting and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed the tour. I would recommend it to anyone.

    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

    We visited the Dublin castle since it's an important part of Irish history. We were not disappointed. The place is full of great paintings and at the time they also had a great photo exhibition. It doesn't take much time to visit the whole Castle so don't worry about getting tired.

    I did not know about Marsh's Library before I visited Dublin. A tour guide told me about it after I raved about how much I loved the old library at Trinity College. So, of course, I had to visit Marsh's as well. I recommend Marsh's library to all book lovers, history nerds and lovers of all things beautiful.

    The staff are what really makes this a special theatre experience. We took our daughter to see the Nutcracker. Wonderful performance, but it was the venue and the staff that make the whole experience special. Lovely seats, beautiful venue adds a special, magical atmosphere to the whole experience.

    Met up with some local Pokémon players for an event. We really enjoyed walking around the park and discovering many little areas.
