This museum was highly interactive and educational. The pace through the different exhibits was perfect. I never felt that I could not see or pushed through from people behind us. Raw information and very touching....power to the Irish people!

Absolutely fascinating place set in Dublin's up and coming Docklands area; I would have loved to spend more time in the museum to explore all the different sections it had to offer. You learn so much about the Irish emigration and some fascinating stories from different characters that were all part of it. Very interactive and thought-provoking museum that makes you wonder if there could be a bit of Irish in yourself!

What a fantastic place. Wish we had more time. To really experience it, I would recommend planning at least 3 - 4 hours.
