    I participated in their cocktail making class with my brothers and it was the highlight of our Dublin trip! Tom was an absolute pro and blast to listen to and learn from. During the class we learned how to make 3 different types of cocktails to highlight the variety of options you have with whiskey. Such a fun and unique experience I can not recommend enough.

    This museum sets out the emigration experience in great detail and it is both inspirational and heartbreaking to hear about the circumstances in wich the people left the Ireland. The audio guides are very good, be preapred to spend at least a few hours here.

    We found that ALL of the historical properties which are overseen by Ireland's OPW (Office of Public Works) are exceptionally well done and immaculately maintained. Our tour guide was amazingly well informed and interesting. This is such an insightful perspective of the turbulent history of the country's various efforts at independence. This is an important site and definitely worth visiting.

    I am not a huge beer drinker, but tis museum is superb and even my teetotal companions enjoyed this and found it educational. Probably one of the highlights of our visit to Dublin.

    Loves the old library. TTakes you back to the old days of higher education and reminds us of the long history when women were not allowed to participate. BoK was a Good exhibit. Would be better if there was a balance of information about adverse impacts of the missionaries on the local communities.

    Went to check out this quirky place while exploring Temple Bar in Dublin. They have everything from Phil Lynott’s report card to a pair of Michael Jackson’s pj’s. Our guide, Alan, was funny, very knowledgeable and made everyone feel like his new best friend. Thanks for introducing me to so much more Irish Rock N Roll than the Cranberries and U2 ( not that there’s anything wrong with those guys! )

    Brilliant tour, loved the way the history of Dublin life is presented. The building is used to great effect to describe two very different life styles. Guide was terrific! He shared stories that appealed to all ages in the group, from a 12 year old boy to a woman in her 60s.

    Informative and well-presented exhibition. Just the right size not to be overwhelming. Make sure you visit the lovely garden outside and the roof garden.

    This place is mind-blowing! So many centuries of history, so beautifully preserved! The crypt is very Game of Thrones, and the rest of it very Pillars of the Earth! It's crazy to me that I can stand in a building that was laid out almost 1,000 years ago. The audio tour is completely worth it - I felt so smart when it was over! Honestly I wasn't going to go to it, but someone recommended it so strongly I gave it a shot and I am SO glad I did. Please go - you're going to love it!

    Completed the Tour last week while entertaining an American Friend. Was Guided around the old stadium by Annette, a fantastic Kildare woman who similar to myself is hoping for a big win her next Sunday in the Leinster Championship. She also is extremely knowledgeable going through the history of all the stands, showing all the interesting Rooms and areas of the stadium. Loved every second of it!

    Its an interactive tour, there's Gaelic Games simulation for you to try out your skills. Needless to say I won't be playing county anytime soon!

    There are tow cathedrals in the magical city of Dublin. This is the one that by rule of Henry 8th and William and Mary became the CafE cathedral. It is much more inclusive these days. It is in the classic style of cathedrals on the British Isles. And there is some pretty impressive stained glass. Watch out for equally impressive shrines to Norman English Lords or were they Welsh Tudor Lords by then?In excellent condition - the shrines and excellent examples of how the rich and vainglorious established their piety and loyalty. It is an excellent visit. Note there is an entry charge - it is a church after all.
