The Treasury Audioguide
Traditional audio guide handsets are available to hire for small fee from the museum shop in the main rotunda but if you have a MP3 player or smartphone, you can download the guide for free.
The Treasury - Celtic and Early Christian Ireland audio-guide is the first dedicated audio guide at the National Museum and is available in an MP3-Album format, available to download for free below.
There are approximately 30 tracks which were scripted by specialist curators from the National Museum and are available in 6 languages (English, Irish, French, German, Spanish, and Italian). They provide insightful descriptions of artefacts as well as interesting associated facts.
Once downloaded, the tracks can be played on an iPhone, iPod, Android phone or MP3 player as an album. Listen to a sample here:
