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.

    Really enjoyed this free and interesting museum. All self guided but very good displays and history of the artifacts. The bog bodies and jewelry from the neolithic time were fascinating. So many items to view. Tell a good story of Ireland's history through archaelogy.

    This area can be filled with people or quiet and empty. It all depends when you go and what you want. A stroll in the morning will get you a chance to see it without much interference. Later in the day and into the night, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from, and you can listen to music from various bars as you walk. Very touristy, but that's okay when you are a tourist.

    What a wonderful museum! So many treasures are inside, and the exhibitions are beautifully done. We couldn't believe it was all free. The museum staff were also very passionate about their jobs and very helpful in directing us to areas we wanted to see. The cafeteria inside is also top-notch as far as museum cafeterias go. While it might not be top of the list in terms of must-see museums in Dublin for most people, I'd definitely recommend it.

    To see the whole Park one should rent a bike. This park is huge with a lot to offer. The presidents house along with the US embassy and the Dublin Zoo is in the park.

    Beautiful gardens and greenhouses. It was free! Great way to spend a few hours in Dublin away from the crowds of tourists.

    If you like a bit of quality shopping, Grafton Street is the place to be. All the household names, designer brands & an upmarket department store. Don’t forget your credit card!

    Well thought out exhibition. Some beautiful work from lesser known Irish artists and early work from better known artists. Well worth a visit.

    A very moving monument to the one million Irish men, women and children who starved during the Famine. The Famine Statues, located on Custom House Quay, were presented to the city in 1997.

    There’s a lot to see here, including historical information about this beautiful country. A much better experience than the nearby Museum of Modern Art.

    Fabulous small gallery— one of the best in Dublin. Couple of Monet paintings and a few other well-known artists. Modern Art from Irish painters. Great gift shop with good prices.

    Although called "mountains," hills would be more accurate. Lots of very enjoyable walks/hikes, with fantastic views across Dublin city and bay. Recommended!

    This pedestrian bridge across the River Liffey has stood the test of time. Its simple and functional design enables Dubliners and visitors an easy and safe option to cross the river.

    Knowing of the famous song we had to visit the statue and of course have the obligatory rub for luck.
