Brilliant use of multimedia and overall a great experience.
However, there was no mention made of the 1980s emigration which was massive. I was one of the hundreds of thousands to leave Ireland then and feel that we have been forgotten.
Coverage of the "Famine" was also very skimpy with no reference made to the role of the English government in this disaster.

Very well done museum with interesting displays and good use of media. Interesting history and fun displays about Irish entertainment towards the end. You need at least two hours to go round it properly! Also an excellent little “mall” with several coffee shops and restaurants and plenty of seating for relaxing. I would definitely go for another visit!

This is a fascinating interactive experience museum-
There’s lots of aspects of Irish life and emigration to read about watch and listen-
It’s too much for one visit- I will go back and learn some more!
Really enjoyed this!

A primarily multi-media experience which offered no artifacts but was a bit thin on history. It was possible to see most of it in a couple of hours. I found that a lot of the information about innovation and science and literature left me wondering who all these people were as I know too little about the intellectual life of Ireland. Likewise many of the artists were completely new to me.

This is a World Class Museum and Exhibition. Beautifully presented in the restored cellars of an old dockland warehouse close to the River Liffey which wanders through the City of Dublin. The presentations with sound and interactive screens is just magnificent. Well worth a visit by all Irish Residents, Visitors of Irish Heritage and friends Worldwide.

Fabulous for children from age 10 yrs. my 2 grandchildren loved it, but the highlight was sending the mail near the end, which they sent to themselves and now can look back on their day there.
