EPIC Irish Emigration Museum

National Wax Museum Plus
The National Wax Museum Plus isn't an exquisite showcase of the best that can be done with wax sculptures. However, it is a interesting walk-through of Irelands social and cultural history. Kids will really enjoy the wax museum especially the science & discovery section and the tunnels. They can...

Botanic Gardens Dublin
Located in Dublin’s sleepy Glasnevin suburb, the National Botanic Gardens are one of the city’s real treasures. Every time I go I feel a real sense of refreshment leaving the Gardens. They are a wonderful (and free) resource for the capitals inhabitants and tourists. Established in 1795 by John Foster,...
With 1m people buried here you might think this is a pretty ghoulish thing to do but Glasnevin Cemetery is absolutely steeped in history so if that’s your thing then you need to get down there. There is a 10.30am walking tour (but check this out as it changes...
