National Museum of Ireland

Located in the heart of Dubin's vibrant cultural centre

1

After requests from the Royal Dublin Society (RDS), the decision to establish a state-run museum arose to continue expanding museum activities. Today, the National Museum is Ireland's leading museum institution with three different branches in Dublin. The three different locations are located between a 10-minute walk and 25-minute walk from the Morgan. Head to our offers page to see our full range of packages for staying at the Morgan Hotel.
