Positive is the place is nicely fitted out and more effort and money had been spent on the decoration than I expected. However the guided tour format they are currently running didn't work. The content was uninteresting and I can honestly say I learnt nothing...More

We visited last night and didn't know what to expect but it was really entertaining. Our tour guide Bridget was a fantastic story teller and guide, so funny. Was tempted to go on the day time tour as well.

Not really sure who this is aimed at - nobody on our tour seemed very impressed adults or children. We wandered round a series of rooms with a storyteller who was quite enthusiastic to be fair but she left us for ages in the room...More

We had a great storyteller. She was passionate and authentic. Could have listened for hours. She managed to identify oneself as a listener to the story. I even bought a fairytale book due to one story. Would do it again. Great experience.

Great place. Highly recommended, all ages. A peek into Irish heritage no other way can communicate so elegantly. Enjoyed it a lot. No spoilers!

If you are a sane adult willing to pay the 14 Euro entry fee after reading this review, you might as well go because you probably do believe in leprechauns. Even if they had a real leprechaun chained up inside it would not have stopped...More

I did the adults only tour which runs after closing time and found that there wasn't much about leprechauns really. It was kind of just an hour with an Irish tour guide taking us from room to room telling us messed up old Irish tales...More

No not suitable for under 6 year olds. They would be bored or scared by the stories.
