Fodor's Review

Roughly 5,000 European Jews fleeing the pogroms of Eastern Europe arrived in Ireland in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today the Jewish population hovers around 1,800. The museum, opened in 1985 by Israeli president Chaim Herzog (himself Dublin educated), includes a restored synagogue and a display of photographs, letters, and personal memorabilia culled from Dublin's most prominent Jewish families. Exhibits trace the Jewish presence in Ireland back to 1067. In

homage to Leopold Bloom, the Jewish protagonist of Joyce's Ulysses, every Jewish reference in the novel has been identified. The museum is a 20-minute-or-so walk southwest from St. Stephen's Green.
