Myself and my wife visited here with great excitement and anticipation of a true look at a Dublin Town House throughout the decades, our guide Tracy was very knowledgeable and full of stories to entertain us. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommended.

This is such a remarkable place, definitely worth making the trip. Visited on Thursday afternoon. From the very warm and kind welcome from the lovely lady at the desk to the fascinating rooms. A real piece of social history. A must see!

Good place to visit. Brought back memories of things we used before all the modern technology. Brought back memories of family members now gone. Friendly, informative staff can tell you all about the various objects in the house.

Hi, I'm not sure about that. I would advise joining Visit Scotland as a Member. You can then visit lots of venues throughout the year. It is well worth the membership fee. Other places nearby are Pollock House, Holmwood... More
