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.

    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.

    I wasn’t expecting much from the tour; however, I was pleasantly surprised by how informative, interesting and funny our tour guide, Marc, was in leading the tour. I purchased the Trinity tasting and tried all three of their main product lines. My favorite was the Single Malt which was matured in 5 different casks and had a smoothness much older than the age would suggest. I ended up buying a bunch of bottles.

    A special shoutout to our tour guide, Marc, for a great experience. I posted his photo if others are interested in the tour, ask for him.

    Attended this tour with my mam, sister and 10 year old nephew and we were all captivated from start to finish. Sheila the tour guide was so lovely and genuinely seemed so interested in what she was doing. She was fantastic with the adults and children.

    Would 100% recommend!

    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.

    Very easy to travel to by Dublin Bus and stops outside the premises. Has clean toilets and cafe serves nice coffee. Gardens are very well kept and peaceful especially how it’s located in a busy city. Variety of different healthy trees, flowers & shrubs. Greenhouses are impressive. Chilled environment.

    This is a true hidden gem in Dublin! Our tour guide, Andrew, was so knowledgeable, and the history in this church is so fascinating! You can see some of the crypts and their mummified residents, and the church keeps the tour very respectful of the dead. We also met Olive and Tom. They were so sweet and made the visit that much better! This was my favorite thing we did in Dublin!

    This is an amazing library and one that is not well known. It is worth the time to see this early public library and learn about the founder. As a bonus, there was a fascinating exhibit on maps of early America.

    I went on the Print Museum guided tour today and loved every second of it. Nothing like this tour in the rest of Ireland. The tour was easy to follow as it was in three clear sections and in chronological order. The guide (Liam!) was very clear throughout the tour, which was a great help. Everything was there for me other than it could have been a bit longer. The small size of the museum definitely limits the possibilities.

    I really enjoyed the practical side of the tour. Being able to touch something makes it easier to understand how the workers felt and how the machines work. I also enjoyed the videos because they were very thorough. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone in the area.

    Drawn to look inside St Audoen's by the sound of bells pealing in its castle -like tower, Bernadetta, one of the visitor team, showed me round and, taking a real interest when I said I was a bell ringer at home, explained three of the bells were the oldest in Ireland having been cast in 1423. They still sounded great 601 years later. She was as keen to learn a bit about ringing as to share her knowledge about Dublin's oldest church and its key features in the limited time I had. I really appreciated her enthusiasm in understanding its history and bringing it to life for me, as well as giving me advice about catching the airport bus. I was only sorry I didn't have more than one day in Dublin and felt lucky to have met Bernadetta and include her among the friendly welcoming people I met in Ireland.

    We went specifically to view Harry Clarke’s The Eve of St. Agnes. Absolutely spectacular. Unlike most of Clarke’s stained glass that has to be viewed in situ and therefore from some distance, looking up at a window that may not have optimal light behind it, the Hugh Lane has the panels at eye level, backlit and set so you can literally get within a couple inches to see the amazing detail.

    I only wish that the Gallery would consider curtaining the entrance to the darkened viewing room; the glare from outside was distracting.

    One of the best castles I’ve visited in Ireland. You can see the passion of the people who renovated it everywhere. It was a fantastic tour but also a lot of fun! Will definitely be people more visitors here in the future. Just make sure you book ahead so the guys can prepare!

    Fascinating building, full of treasures of Irish literature, but at the moment it is worth beating a path tro the NLI's door just to visit the FREE exhibition on WB Yeats - beautifully curated and planned out, with a great number of original manuscripts and First Editions, the best thing about it is the presntation of his poems, his politics, his lovers, his mysticism and his theatriclity, which all get dedicated areas and presentations. To understand this complex man you have to take a deep dive into all these aspects, and with this superbly mounted installation, you can do just that in about an hour and a half. Mind, you'll want to go back for more!!
