“Lovely Museum and great guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

Our stay at the museum 2 Weeks ago was really great! Laura was such a lovely tour guide and gave us so much interesting information about the Irish music history. You can see everything from band riders over guitars to old recording studios. Also, the opportunity to get on stage and play a bit is great and should be tried by everyone who joins the tour. I don't know if it's as interesting for people who are not as much into music as I am, but for me, it was an absolutely unforgettable experience. Thank you Laura, thank you Irish Rock'n'Roll Museum, best greets from Cologne, Germany!

It is worth a visit. Impressive mural with many of Ireland's great musicians. Take a photo of your friends in front of the mural. Located in Temple Bar.

“Irish rock gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

If you are a fab of Lizzy or U2 you will love the exhibits at this "working" museum.
It provides an interesting tour around a working studio & boasts a history rich in so far as the list of (mainly Irish) legends who have used the facilities.
But....if you are a fan of Lynott or Bono the rooms dedicated to these 2 bands are worth the entrance fee alone...Rock on !

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Tour guide is very knowledgeable about the musicians who have visited the studios. Attendees are allowed to take as many photos as they want. Tour is very interactive so you are able to stand on the stage of the Button Factory as well as play instruments. Very fun experience.

“So much fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Me and my partner went on a tour today. We were the only people there which was great so we pretty much got a private tour. Our tour guide Laura was very friendly and easy to talk to, she made us feel very welcome. We went on a tour around the studios, dressing rooms etc and it was great! I learned so much on the tour. At first when we got to the place and they said it would be €32.00 for two people i was shocked at the price. Nut once we got into the tour i understood why it was expensive. It would of been nice to be able to keep the VIP pass as a souvenir as we did pay a lot of money. Other than that it was a great experience!! Would highly recommend if you enjoy rock music.
