    Awesome tour
    Alan gave us an excellent tour. He should consider pursuing stand up comedy! Also sang a bit of Queen for us, LOL. I was surprised that rock music had so much Irish history and roots!
    Hi Lucas Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're delighted you enjoyed your tour with Alan. He definitely is a storyteller and comedian at once :D we'll make sure to pass on your compliments to him. We're glad you learned more about Irish music history on the tour and hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Dublin. If you took any photos of your visit we'd love for you to share them with us online. Kind Regards The Management Irish Rock N Roll Museum Experience

    Great tour and music experience
    Absolutely loved our tour of The Irish Rock ‘N’ Roll Museum Experience Dublin. There were people from all over the world and our guide Alun made a point of asking everyone names and were they were from and also remembered them!! Alun was both funny and knowledgeable and shared lots of antidotes about Irish music and musicians who had recorded at the studio. We got to go into lots of rooms with memorabilia of Irish musicians and bands and also watched a short film . Some of our group were musicians and had the chance to play in one of the practice rooms, which was great to watch!! I would absolutely recommend to anyone who likes music!!

    Well worth the money
    This tour is well worth the €20. It’s a fascinating insight it to the history of Irish music. Our guide Alan was superb. He made the tour highly interesting in a relaxed and informal manner. He also made a great effort to make everyone in the group feel part of the tour. If you are interested in music in any way I would highly recommend this tour.

    Buses For Trains live at the Irish R&R musuem

    Sorry I’m late, I was binging Shades of a Blue Orphanage by Thin Lizzy
    I was there on March 20th (I’m a procrastinator, sorry) but as a spur of the moment decision, this was hands down the best part of my day. My bestie and I came all the way from Long Island NY and as big music lovers we learned so much and really appreciated this experience top to bottom. Also, the Spotify playlist is fuego🔥. Also ALSO; special shout out to our tour guide Alan for not only all the information, but for the fun quips and quotes. One of our favorites having been “They say the winners write history and the losers write the songs… we have a lot of songs.” (Also hi Alan, so sorry for procrastinating on this review. I hope it’s ok that it’ll count towards April’s review goal now)

    Brilliant
    This was by far the best thing we did in Dublin on our first weekend there. Alan was an absolute amazing guide; character, personality, humour, his music known second to none. His stories, quips, was hanging off every word. 5 of us lads from Liverpool went to this and lapped up the Irish takes and music history fed to us. We came out of there buzzing. Alan completely made it for us. If you aren’t sure what to book in Dublin, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Visited Fri 31 March 23. Geoff

    Biggest recommendation in Dublin
    I had an amazing experience with our tour guide Alan. He took the time to answer our questions, truly had a unique point of view on the items in the museum and gave personal anecdotes which really enriched the experience. Wether rock music is your jam or not, definitely visit here and ask about Alan's experience of meeting Rihanna. Thank you Alan!
    Hi evayanatimmy Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're delighted you had such a good time on your tour with Alan. The tour thrives on the stories that the company has collected and experienced during its time in the heart of Dublin city, so we're really glad that you enjoyed them.

    10/10 tour (guide)
    This was such a great experience. It started great and ended even better. I didn’t know much about rock bands, but even if you’re inexperienced this was still very interesting and I wanted to know more about all the details. Our tour guide really was the cherry on top, he made this experience so fun and he made us feel safe. He tells everything with such passion and you can see he really enjoys his job. Thank you Alan, we are very greatful!

    Did the tour with Alan today - couldn’t recommend it enough! He was really friendly, engaging and it was tons of fun throughout. There’s lots of stories and interesting things to look at. A must for any music fan! Alan was possibly one of the best guides I’ve ever had on any tour!

As each tour guide has their own special stories to tell, I've been there several times. On my recent visit, I joined Alan's tour and was deeply moved by the emotional and touching stories he shared about Sinesd O'Connor and Nirvana. The personal insights he provided made the experience unforgettable. The place isn't just a museum; it's a music studio where bands still rehearse, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in the spirit of Rock'n'Roll. Highly recommend!

Excellent experience with lots of interesting information given by our guide Emily (I think it was). U2 room was interesting as was the rehearsal room where a couple of guests had a go on drums and guitar. Up onto the stage - standing where great artists have stood before. On to the Phil Lynott room over the road at Temple Bar Studios. Great stories told - would recommend.
