    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.

    There is A LOT to see in this museum, so be preapred to spend a couple of hours! The peat presevred bodies were a particualr highlight - if slightly gruesome!

    We enjoyed a nice stroll through the peaceful park. Enjoyed the statues, birds, and plant life. Good place to relax amid the bustle of the city dynamics.

    We did not know what to expect other than it is a large park. Large is an understatement, it is bigger than the centre of Dublin, and it is beautiful! There are three herds of deer, that are tame too! There is a lovely lake, many flowerbeds, and plenty of pathways to walk. For anyone who has difficulty with walking there is not a lot of seating though. There is a wonderful hidden gem of a pub, called The Hole in the Wall too! Lots of wildlife to see on the way, along with the Presidents Palace and American Ambassador (both viewable from outside gates)
    We really enjoyed it here!

    We really enjoyed our visit to these gardens - there is so much to see and entry is free. It's a lovely location and is a very relaxing place. It was a 20-minute walk from the tram. Seating in the cafe is limited but there are quite a few benches outside,

    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.

    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!

    Definitely do the Jeannie Johnston before going to the Emigration museum. Our guide, sorry I can’t remember the name, was amazing. There was an annoying “historian” who joined the tour, but our guide kept his cool.

    The tour itself was good, because the stories felt like they were brought to life. Incredible.

    I visited in 2016 knowing very little about the 1916 Easter Uprising so my first visit was more of a rushed overview. I’m here six years later and have seen more of the sites and learned more about the issues. I found the overall presentation to be very helpful in putting everything in perspective and helping me remember the key dates, issues, and people involved. It has made visiting other sites in Dublin and throughout Ireland much more enjoyable and interesting because I can relate and understand the significance so much more. Well done. Easy location and highly recommend.

    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!

    I thought I knew this part of Dublin well but how wrong I was! Our excellent guide Phelim packed in the stories and insights during this entertaining walking tour from Richmond Barracks to Kilmainham Gaol. A major focus was the many interesting characters who are associated with the area. Highly recommended.

    Really lovely museum with a lot of things to see! Spent a few hours looking around at all the different exhibits. Especially enjoyed the furniture/rooms part and the fashion bits. And best thing is it's completely free to see all of the amazing things in this museum! We chose the perfect day to go here because it was raining all day.

    I found this museum to be an interactive way to learn about the Viking heritage and their contribution to Dublin. Unfortunately we were there with school tours and the children pretty much dominated the place preventing the staff from answering any questions we had. I did learn history of the Viking kings and clans. I enjoyed the museum but I would recommend going in afternoon when school is out.

    We went to see a fantastic performance of The lonesome West at the Gaiety Theatre on Saturday Night and what a blast we had. A full theatre back in action, it was superb to witness after these hard times for this industry. Everyone obliged by the mask-wearing rule which made our group feel very comfortable. We sat on the ground floor and were served by a lovely gentleman jack who arranged drinks for us waiting at the interval at a table. Top Class service from all staff. We will we back
