Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Dublin / Dublin / National Leprechaun Museum
A place of magic and mystery, National Leprechaun Museum narrates the story of the mischievous elf from Irish folklore. Once described as the "Louvre of leprechauns," the museum explains the basics of Irish mythology and presents the history of the little man with magical powers by showcasing his appearances in various forms of popular culture. Walt Disney went on a leprechaun hunt in 1948, and if you suspend your judgment during your visit, so can you. Enter the world of leprechauns by exploring a room furnished with furniture so large you may begin to suspect you have become smaller in size. Other rooms contain rainbows, pots of gold, deep wishing wells, and giant tree trunks.

The staff and management are EXTREMELY rude. My kid (6 years old) doesn't speak English, because of it I was expelled from the museum by the back door even after paying for my tickets.

What a fantastic little museum you spend an hour in. It was a guided tour by a lovely lady full of knowledge and Irish tales in every room you entered. Definitely worth a visit if you go to Dublin

This was a very entertaining event... The dark tour for adults only was definitely worth the visit. Paudie, our guide, was very funny and a great singing voice. Great to learn some of Ireland's folklore... Though not too much about Leprechauns. If you have the time, then pop in and experience for yourself.
We visited The National Leprechaun Museum last week and were pleasantly surprised! Our guide Stefan was brilliant, really kept everyone engaged and hanging on his every word. Great stories, history and folklore. Great selection of books in the gift shop.
This museum was unlike any other I’ve been to, in a positive way. It’s a multimedia venue but was unlike anything else as it revolves around storytelling. You have a personal guide/storyteller & it’s very entertaining. It revolves around Irish history, culture & mythology. I found it to be one of the more unique things I’ve done in a while.
Walked in off the street with no advance booking and was warmly welcomed, just in time for a tour. The interior is a very immersive experience with very well thought out surprises in each room, escorted by a very entertaining storyteller. The 45 minute tour was dramatic, comedic and full of very interesting stories about the history of folklore in Ireland. My 7 year old girl held her attention for most of the time and was allowed to engage with the scenery when her interest waned. Lots of interesting books in the gift shop, and great photo opportunity props. Highly recommended for locals and tourists alike!
An amazing museum detailing the history and legend surrounding leprechauns in Ireland. The museum has a unique way of telling the story which is both captivating for adults and children a like. The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable. If you are a big group it would be advisable to book in advance.
