Learn About the History of Jews in Ireland at the Irish Jewish Museum in Dublin

The Irish Jewish Museum was opened by the Sixth President of Israel, Chiam Herzog, while he was on a State visit to Ireland in June of 1985. He took great pleasure in undertaking this task as he lived as a child in the Portobello area of south Dublin during the time his father served as the first Chief Rabbi of Ireland. The Museum tells the story of the Irish Jewish community from the earliest references to a visit of Jewish merchants in 1079 up to the present day.

The Museum is in two parts with a Social History area on the ground floor and the old Synagogue which existed from the early 1900’s on the first floor. Both areas contain material related to the practise of the Jewish religion and photos of times past and present.

The museum is only a 15-20 minute walk from St. Stephen’s Green and very close to the Harcourt Luas Station as well as on frequent bus routes.
