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.

    My sister and myself spent 4 nights in Dublin and this was one of the attractions we visited.
    It was well worth the money and the tour guide was amazing with a great knowledge of the history of the gaol. It was good to learn about the history and the inmates who were locked up here and what become of them.
    There were plenty of opportunities to take photographs on the tour and you could buy gifts from the shop on site.
    We both enjoyed it and would reccomend it.

    We missed this on our first trip to Dublin but returned a year later and visited on a whim one morning.
    This is up there with Kilmainham Gaol as one of the most interesting places in Dublin and Pauline our guide was brilliant.

    Awesome tour! Very interactive, staff is amazing, Guinness is delicious, you get to learn how to pour a proper Guinness and enjoy it afterwards.

    They have a machine that takes your photo and it comes on top of the beer

    Rooftop bar is a great way to end your tour!

    Lots of choice for merchandise, the hoodies are super comfortable

    This was a nice and educational tour. This was paced very well, and no one was rushing. This came with a drink, and we were able to sample three different types of Jameson's. You will learn about the history of the company and how far they will go to get the best possible ingredients and barrels for their whisky.

    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.

    One word AMAZING! Do not miss it when you visit Dublin! A lot to see and hear. If you love music you have to go here! You even can stand on the same stage where some rocklegends have performed! So do not scroll and think but just book your tickets and enjoy!!

    An incredible experience for anyone the least bit interested in Irish history and culture. A must see to better understand the country that you are visiting. The graphics and presentation were amazing.

    An interactive exhibit with blown up pages from the illustrated pages from the Bible that you walk through and learn the history. Then you see the actual book - open to just 2 random pages (our day was all words but I understand that it rotates so you may see illustrations). Then a walk through the Long Library where unfortunately they’ve removed most of the books.

    Interesting museum - the exhibits of gold ornaments and bog people are particularly fine. It took us a while to find it however; the streets in Dublin change names every couple of blocks, so it is confusing.

    Our guide, Joey, was super engaging and fun while still knowing a lot about the brand and the history of whiskey in Dublin generally. Very nice, modern facility. Would recommend doing the tasting that gives you 4 pours to try as there were some very interesting and delicious offerings there!

    wonderful experience, and well deserved visit. plus the kindness of Ed Coleman who, once we contacted him, sent us a family brooch bought in church for my dad's birthday but unfortunately lost before returning to Italy. And he was a truly very kind person who I hope we will have the pleasure of getting to know.

    It is not possible to visit Dublin without visiting some bars in Temple Bar. Very relaxed atmosphere, but like all places with lot of bars, there are a lot of people drunk on the street.

    We visited the museum in our stay in Dublin. You can visit the exhibits in about 2-hrs. The exhibit Sacred Traditions explores religious traditions from across the East Asian, Islamic and Western regions. Entry is free. In addition to the exhibits there is a nice cafe and the museum abuts a nice park.

    I had a few hours to kill in Dublin before a flight and I’m so happy I followed my Dad’s recommendation to do the Croke Park stadium visit. I was the only person in the group who knew nothing about the GAA before visiting and after the tour and a quick walk around the museum I felt inspired to learn more the sports and follow it more closely. Our excellent guide Seamus brought the experience to life with stories of past games and players who have graced the famous turf, and he was welcoming of me and my questions about the very basics of the games. His enthusiasm for and knowledge of the sport has encouraged me to get down to a London game soon.

    In our group was a Dad with his two young sons visiting Croke Park for the first time. It was clear how much it meant to him and his kids to visit the stadium and see behind the scenes of where their heroes play. English sport has lost the romance and charm that the GAA still seems to cherish, and the Croke Park team do a great job of celebrating the GAA’s unique history.

    I wish I’d had more time to spend in the museum, it deserved more than the 20mins I had available to explore it. I guess I’ll have to come back again soon.
