We were all excited to come here but it turned out to be poor. Too expensive, the lady who was telling us the stories was unengaging and towards the end the stories were even about leprechauns. I really wouldn't bother, highly disappointing.

This is a delightful way to learn about Irish fairy tales and folklore! The story teller was super enthusiastic and pulled you right into the tale. The decor was perfect!!! I would highly recommend this tour and would honestly do it again!!

We had been so excited to visit the museum. We arrived 20 mins before the last tour time and were turned away as they were closing. The guy at reception clearly couldn't be bothered with another tour. Highly disappointed!

The Leprechaun Museum is all about story-telling and Killian (I think his name was Killian, sorry!) did a fine job of telling some tales and background of the myths of the leprechaun. I don't think I can get myself to watch Darby O'Gill and the...More

Went with my son. It is worth a visit if you go with children or if you are a Fairy fan. Is a storytelling visit, so for kids is perfect
