Good collection in an impressive building Oct 03, 2010
Although this counts as one museum, it is located across four different sites. My review is limited to the site which is devoted to Decorative Arts and History. The website has full details about each of the four sites.

Apart from the contents, this particular building is very impressive. It used to be an army barracks, so the building does feel rather grand to go in. naturally, the contents are in line with the building’s history. They do have a collection of arms and other battle artefacts which concern the country’s history. Also, they have many Christian artefacts and clothes from earlier centuries on show. The collection extends beyond Ireland and artefacts from Asia can also be seen.

Admission is free and no photographs are allowed within the building itself. The photograph taken of the celtic crosses and attached to this review is from a postcard.

Well worth considering if you have an hour or two to spare in Dublin.
