Overview

The first Jews to settle in Ireland came from Portugal and Spain, fleeing from the Inquisition. Their exodus has not been forgotten, and this museum chronicles the history of the Jewish community in this country. Many fascinating Judaic pieces are on display, including photographic records of the history of the community. Upstairs, a synagogue has been carefully reconstructed. The museum also details the story of the pogroms against Irish Jews in the 20th century (often conveniently forgotten) and is, in many ways, a poignant record of a community now in decline in Ireland. Admission is free.
