One of the top places to visit in Dublin to learn about the history of Ireland is the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology; one of the three branches of the National Museum of Ireland. The museum is home to exceptional permanent artifacts dating all the way back to 7000BC. The collections that are spread across seven galleries are known to transport visitors back in time. Those visiting the museum will come across a number of exhibitions, including Viking Ireland, the Treasury, Prehistoric Ireland, Ireland’s Gold and Medieval Ireland, amongst others. Found here are prehistoric gold artifacts, world-renowned jewelry, metalwork from the Celtic Iron Age, bronze axes, bog bodies and much more.

The National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology does not have prayer facilities for Muslim visitors. Muslims visiting the attraction will therefore have to make use of the facilities offered at one of the many mosques and Islamic Centers in the city of Dublin. Some prominent prayer facilities in the city include the Islamic Foundation of Ireland and Dublin Mosque, the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland, the Muslim Association of Ireland and the Clondalkin Muslim Mosque.
Visitors to the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology can dine at the Museum Café. While the café will offer a wide range of foods items, Muslim tourists will have to order suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes as non-Halal ingredients are sure to be used. They could also visit one of the several Halal restaurants in the city of Dublin
