Plan Your Language School Visit


We encourage teachers/group leaders to visit beforehand to see the exhibitions, plan activities and collect worksheets.

Do It Yourself

You can enjoy the museum without booking a tour or activity. This allows you to choose a time and date that suits you. Check out what you can do here.

We DO need to know you’re coming. Make a Booking and we will help you organise your trip.


Adults in charge must remain with their group at all times while in the Museum buildings and on the grounds and are responsible for the group’s behaviour and safety.

Please ensure a ratio of at least 1 leader to 15 students.

Child Protection

Please read our Policy and Codes of Conduct for groups. These are in place to ensure ALL visitors enjoy their visit.


We have cloakroom facilities. We ask visitors to bring as little baggage as possible with them. Purses and other valuables should not be left in the cloakroom.

  • Please advise your group beforehand not to touch exhibits.
  • Mobile phones are not permitted.
  • Flash photography and video recording require prior written permission.


All buildings are fully accessible. Wheelchairs are available.

We cater for visitors with hearing difficulties and visual impairments.

Lunch / Snacks

Please contact Bramble's café directly on 094 9289972 or email for more information or to make a café booking. We strongly advise that you make a booking for your museum visit first.

There are picnic tables in the gardens.


An extensive range of books for all ages, unique Irish art and craft items, prints and paintings, jewellery, craft packs along with smaller items suitable for children.
