Dublinia brings turbulent history of medieval Dublin vividly to life. Visitors experience life in the Middle Ages first-hand - walk through the streets and laneways of the old city, visit the Merchant's House and climb aboard ship at Wood Quay. Discover how artefacts are found and dated, view a scale model of the 16th century city and finally, come face to face with medieval woman. -(taken from the pamphlet)
Dublinia is an exhibit located in Christchurch Cathedral, which takes you through the early history of Dublin, from around 900 to about 1500, with the focus on the medieval period. It's an interactive exhibit, very good for kids, which encourages you to try things on, throw things, open drawers and press buttons. Along the way, it's surprisingly informative about life in early Dublin, which was quite a small settlement, mostly populated by people who weren't native to Ireland - first the Vikings, then Normans and English at different periods. One or two sections of the exhibit could do with refurbishment, but generally things work, and there's an excellent balance between text and activities, so that even restless adults will find themselves with plenty to do. At the end, you can climb up the tower and take a look at most of Dublin's best-known sights, with an excellent series of printed displays to guide the eye.
I didn't visit, but this attraction is connected to Christ Church Cathedral. You actually enter through the church. From what I understand, it's basically an exhibit that gives you an view into what Medieval Dublin might have been like. The tour uses audio-visuals to recreate the past and even has a full-size reconstruction of a merchant's house.
Open 10am-5pm daily.
