Been dying to go to Dublinia for years but was very disappointed. Exhibition was cheap looking and cramped. Receptionist looked like she’d rather be anywhere but in work. Overall? Avoid.More

This is a wonderful museum/ interpretation centre. It is educational and interesting and the view from St. Michaels Tower is lovely. It is worth a visit.

there's more in York, we was there in October 2016 but due to floods a lot of it was closed. once it al re-opens it'd be a better choice than the Dublin one.
