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.

    A relaxing walk through tree canopied walkways, which are beautiful, and paths along the lake in the heart of Dublin. Quite refreshing! They also have flower gardens.

    I was initially skeptical about spending my time in a museum, but this exhibit gave me a much greater appreciation and in depth understanding of my experience in Ireland

    This is a small-ish museum, but well worth a visit. A wonderful collection of gold-work and good explanation of the hordes. The bog people were very interesting and also respectfully displayed. A very nice viking exhibit as well, plus great religious artifacts.

    Whether you're a local or a visitor, this tour should be at the top of your list for things to do in Dublin.

    Our guide, Gillian, demonstrated her vast knowledge of the perils of tenement life as she walked us through the once magnificent building of 14 Henrietta St.

    What I loved most about the tour was hearing Gillian's personal connection to the tenements- she has a real gift for storytelling and the group hung on her every word.

    The tour is both buggy-friendly & wheelchair accessible!

    Extra special thank you to Gillian for her patience, kindness and consideration for two very young people on the tour; it meant so much.

    I would 100% do this tour again and recommend it to everyone as a must-do for Dublin!

    Highly recommend you go on the Croke Park Tour. As a family we thought the Tour was amazing, our tour guide was brilliant, knowledgeable and made our tour very special. Amazing stadium and we learnt a lot about the Stadium and GAA. Will go back again.

    Lovely park with lots of animals including beautiful deer. The park is quite big, so take your time to explore.

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

    We enjoy visiting Dublin Zoo as a family with two young children. A great day out but food choices are limited so would suggest bringing a picnic to make the most of a full day.

    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!

    While this experience is geared more for kids, my friend and I really enjoyed it. Maybe because we are early childhood educators. The staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. You walk through interactive displays. Don’t miss the opportunity to go up in the bell tower for some great views of this part of the city. You can easily combine this with a tour of Christ Church Cathedral and it’s grounds.

    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.

    It was a great experience for a school trip. The trainers are very enthusiastic and it was fantastic to try all the different kinds of sports. We’ll definitely come back.

    Love little laugh. Good for the soul. There is not much better in life than a beer and a comedy show. And we south africans know humor!
