The museum was free. Theme was the taxes. Past machines, tax history, old money samples to be seen. Confiscated illegal items which were smuggled into the country and then taxed. Yep...interesting!

This is a gem. Tucked away behind Dublin Castle and on the way to the Chester Beatty it is often overlooked. But what a find. Take a look back to the days of stills and illegal whiskey, stamps from the old stamping building and lots...More
