An interesting collection of newspapers and other items from Irish history. It was focused on the Easter rising and civil War when we were there and they cycle the exhibit periodically. Worth a look if you are a history buff. Nice gardens too.
What can I say about this. Brilliant, out of this world, what a museum of Irish History. Terrific. Friendly helpful staff, a must visit for anyone interested in the history of Ireland, it has everything. Top class.
