    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 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,

    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.

    We went on the short but highly entertaining tour of the crypts to see the mummies. Our guide was very entertaining and made the tour a truly enjoyable experience. Well worth the cost.

    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.

    We arrived as the library opened so we were the only patrons. The had that old book smell and was very quiet. We were able to read about the history of the library without feeling rushed. Staff gave us a great introduction to the library when we arrived. After leaving the library you exit through a flower filled garden great for photos.

    We were drawn to this because of the Francis Bacon studio. So glad we saw this. Enjoyed the rest of the gallery. Nice, clean, welcoming cafe downstairs.

    We very much enjoyed our tour of Drimnagh Castle on Monday, 28th February 2022. The castle itself is beautifully restored. Our tour guide was very friendly and had an in depth knowledge of the castle. His personal connection to the castle and the local area really enhanced this tour.

    Such an emotive exhibition. The fact that the British government did so little to help starving people. Even Queen Victoria limited her donation when she could have possibly saved everyone. Prisoners in America sent money which showed they had more decency that old Victoria!! Shocking times and such suffering. Will man ever behave decently to all. Well worth a visit.

    Garden might be small but it was brilliant. The only reason why it's not an excellent is that water cascades/fountains weren't working which dimmed my hope a bit for this place. I still enjoyed a walk around immensly. It really does feels like a sanctuary in the middle of city with a small rest it. I loved to see art class, usual strollers & people like me all around enjoying being out d about. Honestly, worth making a detour and coming here if you like finding your zen or greenery.
