National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History reviews
Look up the website for this fantastic building and especially it's contents. In this time where everyone is downbeat it's great to be reminded of what a nation we actually belong to. Proud. Silver..... more »
Nice collection of artifacts related to Irish Military history. Exhibitions are separated by a timeline, giving opportunity to notice the technical evolution of the subjects. more »
Full of interesting history about Ireland. From all conflicts and wars (internal and external) in which the the Irish were involved, plus numerous exhibits of art, crafts, artisan, fashion, instruments and ancient life. Super interesting! And free! Located in the historic Collins Barracks close to the city and on the tram line.
Excellent museum. One of a kind collection of antique coins as well as several other excellent exhibits. Right across river from Guiness Factory, so a good pairing of activities in close proximity.
