Do you like Irish fairy tales and the magic of their flock? You will love the National Leprechaun Museum, a museum entirely dedicated to the myth of the Leprechaun, this little creature from Irish mythology… Located on Jervis Street in Dublin, this museum opened in April 2010, and offers the visitor to slip into the skin of this little leprechaun, to discover his daily life and his treasure, hidden at the foot of a rainbow out of reach of humans… A magical establishment, suitable for the whole family!
The Irish National Leprechaun Museum is located in the heart of Dublin city centre and caters for young and old alike. Colourful, magical and 100% interactive, it offers visitors the chance to slip into the shoes of a Leprechaun from the moment they enter. Indeed, as soon as they enter, visitors plunge into a world where the furniture is gigantic and disproportionate.
The visitor is thus “miniaturized”, and becomes himself this creature from Irish tales and myths. A nice concept, which will enchant children, but also adults who love tales and legends!
Throughout the visit, you will discover the legend of the Leprechaun, its myth and its origins. All this without caricature or stereotypes. You will gradually be guided to the cauldron full of gold coins of the Leprechaun, hidden at the foot of a rainbow, as the legend says…
The visit is for young and old alike, and is a real invitation to dream and travel. The museum is meant to be fun and allows you to reconnect with the history of the Leprechaun, a legend that is sometimes left aside, even though the first traces describing this little leprechaun date back to the 8th century…
Open Monday to Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
