What a waste of money..... I paid for 6 of us, so over £100 of my hard earned money. I am struggling to find words to give the full sense of how bad this place is. Apart from a 6ft stuffed Leprechaun in the gift...More

My boyfriend and I were SO charmed by Andy, our guide and storyteller. He was articulate, fun, and honestly one of the best guides I've ever had. The museum was well-designed, and the gift shop has a great selection of books if you want to...More

I thought this would be an awesome visit for my trip to Ireland. Instead, it was just someone telling a few stories and thus ends the tour. Please, save your Euros and go do something else.

First things first, this is not a collection of leprechaun artefacts or anything you'd expect from a typical museum. Upon arrival before you pay, a staff member explains that this is actually a story-telling experience (this IS fully explained - any reviewers who complain that...More

I loved the concept of this but it really wasn't good value. I hoped to learn about where some of the Irish myths and legends originated and how they have developed. What we actually received were a couple of stories about Leprechauns. The girl doing...More
