Description

Irish people have told stories about the Leprechaun for more than a thousand years. There are many tales about him and the people he meets.

The National Leprechaun Museum, the first ever attraction dedicated to Irish mythology, opens up a fun and magical world full of fascinating folklore, mythology and enchanting stories.

Based in the heart of Dublin, you will explore the museum on a guided tour with a storyteller.

They will bring you through the spaces and tell you more about Irish folklore and mythology. You'll explore spaces that reflect these stories, or recreates experiences typically associated with leprechauns.

The result is a series of captivating, interactive experiences - from the first ever sighting back in the eighth century, through to modern day representations of the leprechaun in film and popular culture - and plenty of adventures in between. 

Feel what it’s like to journey deep beneath the rocks of the Giant’s Causeway, open up your minds to the sights and stories of Ireland’s mythical otherworld on a trip to a fairy hill. Find yourself in a leprechaun-sized world and take a journey to the end of the rainbow to see if the elusive crock of gold really exists.

Night Time Tours (over 18 only)

Join us as we explore the dark twisted side of Irish story-telling. With our tongue buried deeply in our cheek let our Story-tellers tickle the dark underbelly of your mind.

Adults only.

There are hundreds of stories that were only spoken about at night. These tales dealt with the darker subjects found in Irish folklore.

They are tales that are so dark and twisted that there is no way we could ever talk about them during our regular day time tours.

Dark Land is a chance to hear these stories for yourself, and will stay with you for a life time. No refunds for scaredy cats.
