Visited at 4pm during Easter holidays and had a great wee tour. Children loved the Viking dummy on the toilet complete with sound effects😂 A very interesting tour geared for all age groups, I learned a lot. Loved the views from St Michaels Tower which we nearly missed as its at the end, but worth the 96 steps climb which... More

With one floor dedicated to Vikings and another to Medieval people, this experience can give you a nice overview of Irish early history and some archeological techniques. If you're already familiar with the basics, though, I wouldn't bother. With a lot of recreations of objects and rooms from the time, this might be a really cool attraction for kids. They... More

A totally different experience of going round three floors of all historical significance, history well put together and very informative and fun, just shows you what has happened over so much past time.

Creepy mannequins throughout the exhibit. Not very well maintained. The farting mannequin might entertain young children, but it was by far the worst part of my trip to Dublin. Save your money and go to the free Archaeology museum which also has a large Viking history exhibit.

This is a great children's museum where you can learn a lot about the Viking history with Ireland. Many interactive displays to keep the kids interested. Most age appropriate for 7 and up to get the history part but some interactive exhibits for a younger age set. Museum is well laid out and everyone was very friendly. Plan to spend... More

We visited over the bank holiday weekend. It was interesting and well put together. Maybe a little aged but worth the money. The kids enjoyed being little architect's and the staff are very friendly and when we lost our tickets they helped us very kindly..

My wife enjoyed our time in Dublinia, learning about Irish and Dublin history fro prior to and after the Viking invasion. The displays and reading material were very informative, and allows the visitor an excellent understanding of a 1000 years of life on the Emerald Isle. Being from both Norwegian and Irish heritage, it was an enjoyable visit.

Coming from Dublin, I've done many of the of local sights and museums. This does not rank near the top. If you're interested in history, the National Archaelogical Museum (great insight into Ireland's ancient history) would absolutely be superior and actually has many ancient artifacts that are mostly simply alluded to in Dublinia. The National Decorative Arts and History Museum... More
