This was one of the locations included with the Dublinpass. Wasn’t sure what to expect but found it was a world class museum exhibition. Even better the location has a great food court with all sorts of food.

This show you need to spend 3-4 hours to digest all this wonderful history and the the book that shows all the history should be placed in a very obvious just as you exit the show before you enter the shop.
